5.0 out of 5 stars A Concise Handbook, 27 May 2008
M. Walker (Lampeter, Wales) - See all my reviews
This is the perfect introduction to a burgeoning field of literary criticism that concerns itself with the interaction of literature and the environment. This is an academic book that is refreshingly easy to read and comprehend, without comprimising a high level of academic discussion: Garrard has pitched this just right. There is a good introduction to various ideological 'positions' of environmental theory, and some subtle suggestions as to the direction this field of criticism might take in the future. This book also posits a gentle yet powerful commentary on some of the central conceptual issues facing this area of criticism. This book is capable of being both informative and astute.

I would reccomend this to any student wishing to know more about how literature negotiates ideas of nature and environment, and i think it is also a book that anyone could read to discover more about the relationships between culture and nature, and what exactly that might mean!
