Ecofeminist Literary Criticism is the first collection of its
kind: a diverse anthology that explores both how ecofeminism can enrich
literary criticism and how literary criticism can contribute to ecofeminist
theory and activism.
Ecofeminism is a practical movement for social change that discerns interconnections
among all forms of oppression: the exploitation of nature, the oppression
of women, class exploitation, racism, colonialism. Against binary divisions
such as self/other, culture/nature, man/woman, humans/animals, and white/non-white,
ecofeminist theory asserts that human identity is shaped by more fluid
relationships and by an acknowledgment of both connection and difference.
Once considered the province of philosophy and women's studies, ecofeminism
in recent years has been incorporated into a broader spectrum of academic
discourse. Ecofeminist Literary Criticism assembles some of the
most insightful advocates of this perspective to illuminate ecofeminism
as a valuable component of literary criticism.
