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 green studies reader : from Romanticism to ecocriticism / edited by Laurence Coupe ; with a foreword by Jonathan Bate.

London : Routledge 2000.

Abstract: The Green Studies Reader is a fantastically comprehensive selection of critical texts which address the connection between ecology, culture and literature. It offers a complete guide to the growing area of 'ecocriticism' and a wealth of material on green issues from the romantic period to the present. Some important aspects that are covered in depth are romantic ecology and its legacy, Nature/Culture/Gender, and environmental literary history. Included in this collection are extracts from today's leading ecocritics and figures from the past who pioneered a green approach to literature and culture. As a whole the Reader encourages a reassessment of the whole development of criticism and will offer readers a radical prospect for its future.

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.
