New European Approaches549Skickas inom 10-15 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.One of the more frequently lodged, serious, and justifiable complaints about ecocritical work is that it is insufficiently theorised. Ecocritical Theory puts such claims decisively to rest by offering readers a comprehensive collection of sophisticated but accessible essays that productively investigate the relationship between European theory and ecocritique. With its international roster of contributors and subjects, it also militates against the parochialism of ecocritics who work within the limited canon of the American West. Bringing together approaches and orientations based on the work of European philosophers and cultural theorists, this volume is designed to open new pathways for ecocritical theory and practice in the twenty-first century.
