Ecocriticism: An analysis of environmental concerns in various works of literature

Author(s):

Ishwar Kumar Paswan

Abstract:

Environment has threatened human civilization and the world for decades. Misusing natural resources has put us in peril. The rainforests are being cut down, fossil fuels are dwindling, and the seasons are erratic. Our environment is threatened by recurrent global ecological disasters. In the latter decade of the 20th century, Ecocriticism emerged as a new way to read nature writing. It's a worldwide movement that arose in response to man's anthropocentric view of nature. This study explores eco-critical approaches in world literature and Indian English writing. This environmentally focused literature study creates eco-literate readers who care for Mother Nature. Ecocriticism has developed rapidly since its debut due to environmental concerns. It's a tool for interpreting nature literature linked with Environmental critique, Animal studies, Green Cultural Studies, Eco-sophy, Deep Ecology, Ecofeminism, and Ecospiritualism.
