My students had some pretty serious critiques of this book. While it was useful for the explanation of certain terms -- "Wilderness" "Place" and "Dwelling" in particular -- the students generally felt that too much time was spent on case studies that were wandering, verbose, and tangential. They would have preferred a text that dealt more with the vocabulary of ecocriticism rather than its practice. I would not choose to use this text again in a class I teach; I would consider drawing on it for a reader, but I would not require students to purchase it. ( )

Vuonna 2004 julkaistu Greg Garrardin ekokritiikkia käsittelevä kirja on tiukka tietopaketti ja laajasti käytetty lähdeteos myös viimeaikaisissa ekokriittisissa teoksissa (katso esim. Toni Lahtisen ja Markku Lehtimäen toimittama "Äänekäs kevät", 2008). Teos sisältää kattavan kuvauksen ekokritiikistä, sen syntymisestä, olemuksesta, tarkoituksesta,ja suuntauksen sisällä vaikuttavista, haarautuvista ekokriittisistä tutkimussuuntauksista (kuten esim. ekofeminismi). Koska teos on englannin kielinen ja lisäksi tietokirja, ainakin minun oli vaikeaa lukea sitä. Suosittelen kuitenkin kirjaa jokaiselle, joka haluaa jotain ekokritiikistä tietää. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415196922, Paperback)

Inspired by a range of ecological movements, ecocriticism explores the ways in which we imagine and portray the relationship between humans and the environment in all areas of cultural production, from Wordsworth and Thoreau to Disney and BBC nature documentaries. Greg Garrard's animated and accessible volume traces the development of the movement and explores the concepts which have most occupied ecocritics, including:

* pollution
* wilderness
* apocalypse
* dwelling
* animals
* earth.
Featuring an invaluable glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading, this is the first student-friendly introduction to one of the newest and most exciting trends in literary and cultural studies.
