The aesthetic appreciation of Nature as a reaction to dictatorship : disjunction and dissidence in the inner emigration.

Griffiths, K. (2006) 'The aesthetic appreciation of Nature as a reaction to dictatorship : disjunction and dissidence in the inner emigration.', in Nature in literary and cultural studies : transatlantic conversations on ecocriticism.

Abstract

Nature in Literary and Cultural Studies is a collection of essays written by European and North American scholars who argue that nature and culture can no longer be thought of in oppositional, mutually exclusive terms. They are united in an effort to push the theoretical limits of ecocriticism towards a more rigorous investigation of nature’s critical potential as a concept that challenges modern culture’s philosophical assumptions, epistemological convictions, aesthetic principles, and ethical imperatives. This volume offers scholars and students of literature, culture, history, philosophy, and linguistics new insights into the ongoing transformation of ecocriticism into an innovative force in international and interdisciplinary literary and cultural studies.
