This volume centers on the study of the relations between
literature and the environment and poses important questions to an
evolving field: why has ecocriticism focused on narrow, more recent
historical periods? What has prevented or discouraged critics from
extending environmentally-conscious readings further into the past,
and what is lost as a consequence? "Early Modern Ecostudies"
engages directly with such issues and advances a new practice that
borrows from the methodologies of current ecocriticism,
interrogates its problematic assumptions, and extends its reach and
significance. Dealing with a range of subjects, these essays apply
ecocritical methods to traditional authors such as Shakespeare,
Sidney, More, and Milton; canonical texts such Edward Taylor's
poetry and the Florentine Codex; and documents from the literature
of discovery, medicine, and natural history.
