Description

From the Popol Vuh to postmodernism, imagery of the natural world has played important roles in Latin American literature. In contrast to the rise of ecocritical scholarship in Anglophone literary studies, Latin American ecocriticism has been slower to take root. This volume of eleven critical essays seeks to advance the ecocritical conversation among Latin Americanists, furthering insight into the relationship between humans and their environments. The essays transcend national boundaries by addressing regions as diverse as Patagonia and the Chihuahua Desert. The forms of environmental criticism practiced converge with literary history, aesthetic theory, postcolonialism, feminism, cultural studies and Marxism, reflecting the evolution of ecocritical theory and providing a strong overview to this growing critical movement.
