Environmental and Ecological Readings
This volume features 17 articles devoted to various Scottish authors, from 18th c. travel writers to contemporary authors. The essays consider Nature and the environment in their relations to men and women and question how mankind is set to evolve in a contemporary world increasingly perceived as posthuman. They show how these concepts have affected Scottish authors and literature. The articles are presented chronologically, to highlight how each of the authors featured may have influenced the ensuing literary tradition. The 1st part focuses on 18th and 19th c. poets, novelists, artists or travel-writers, while the 2nd turns its attention to 20th and 21st c. authors.
