Romantic ecology : Wordsworth and the environmental tradition / Jonathan Bate.

Abingdon : Routledge 2013

Routledge revivals

Abstract: First published in 1991, Romantic Ecology reassesses the poetry of William Wordsworth in the context of the abiding pastoral tradition in English Literature. Jonathan Bate explores the politics of poetry and argues that contrary to critics who suggest that the Wordsworth was a reactionary who failed to represent the harsh economic reality of his native Lake District, the poet's politics were fundamentally `green'. As our first truly ecological poet, Wordsworth articulated a powerful and enduring vision of human integration with nature which exercised a formative influence on later conservation movements and is of immediate relevance to great environmental issues today. Challenging the orthodoxies of new historicist criticism, Jonathan Bate sets a new agenda for the study of Romanticism in the 1990s.

The song of the earth / Jonathan Bate.

London : Picador [2000], ©2000

Abstract: In the insightful style that characterised the successful The Genius of Shakespeare, Jonathan Bate has written a series of pieces on the link between literature and the environment, such as the importance of nature in literature. This account of literature's relationship with the environment considers how words like "culture" and "environment" have evolved. It offers ideas on how interest in ecology has developed and how literature has influenced our perception of environmental issues.

The genius of Shakespeare / Jonathan Bate.

New York : Oxford University Press, 1998.

Abstract: This is a new kind of biography: a biography of Shakespeare's talent and reputation beyond the limits of his actual life. Part One explores the origins of his works, while Part Two traces their effects on succeeding generations. Never before has a single book combined new readings of Shakespeare's best-known plays with an authoritative summation of the authorship question, speculation on the biographical origin of the sonnets, and a history of how Shakespeare became an inspiration to later artists and a poet of international renown.
