Product Description

Review

"Practical Ecocriticism fills an important niche unoccupied by any other book. Love is mediating between two rapidly developing fields that have hitherto had only glancing connections: ecological literary criticism and evolutionary psychology. As he so persuasively argues, these fields are contiguous and interdependent. This is an immensely valuable contribution and should long provide a central point of reference and information."

Love's reputation precedes him: He was the single most influential intellectual spirit behind the takeoff phase of the ecocritical movement. A substantial, original contribution to the field, Practical Ecocriticism will be a widely influential book.--Lawrence Buell, author of "Writing for an Endangered World: Literature, Culture, and Environment in the U.S. and Beyond "
