About this product
- DescriptionThe twenty-first century has seen an increased awareness of the forms of environmental destruction that cant immediately be seen, localised or, by some, even ackwledged. Ecocriticism on the Edge explores the possibility of a new mode of critical practice, one fully engaged with the destructive force of the planetary environmental crisis. Timothy Clark argues that, in literary and cultural criticism, the Anthropocene , which names the epoch in which human impacts on the planet's ecological systems reach a dangerous limit, also represents a threshold at which modes of interpretation that once seemed sufficient or progressive become, in this new counterintuitive context, inadequate or even latently destructive. The book includes analyses of literary works, including texts by Paule Marshall, Gary Snyder, Ben Okri, Henry Lawson, Lorrie Moore and Raymond Carver.
- Author BiographyTimothy Clark is Professor of English at the University of Durham, UK. His previous publications include The Poetics of Singularity (2005) and The Cambridge Introduction to Literature and the Environment (2010).
