Literature and Nature exposes students to the tremendous diversity of literacy responses to the physical environment. The selections cover four centuries of the best nature writing produced in Britain and America from the Renaissance through the twentieth century. The book includes contributions by writers from all walks of life — men and women of different races, classes and nationalities, each of whom adds a unique perspective to our understanding of the literary representation of the natural world.
Contents include a variety of literary forms, including poems, short stories, non-fiction essays, travel narratives, and excerpts from novels. These varied selections reveal how concern for the environment cuts across differences of gender, social class, education, religion, race, and ethnicity. Literature and Nature provides a wide range of texts, from both well-known and less-familiar writers, and it offers students a broad base of knowledge from which to reflect and respond.
