Description

During the 19th century, insects became a very fashionable subject of study, and the writing of the day reflected this popularity. However, despite an increased contemporary interest in ecocriticism and cultural entomology, scholars have largely ignored the presence of insects in 19th-century literature. This volume addresses that critical gap by exploring the cultural and literary position of insects in the workd of Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, and John Muir.
