Is not a major book in the canon, and was added to the "references" >section after any of the major edits to the article. Appears to have been listed for self-promotion. (see the guy's site to get a better idea >about this) 140.247.248.249 00:34, 4 February >2007 (UTC)

I agree. This should be removed.

This is a petty point really, but The Environmental Imagination was first published in 1995, and not 1996. That's what it says in the copy in my uni library anyway..?Turkeyplucker 11:10, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Since these matters have obviously been attended to, I removed the neutrality and close connection tags. Literature456 (talk) 18:52, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

I cleared up the rest of the page and removed all tags. Literature456 (talk) 19:15, 30 December 2009 (UTC)


Ecocritism in India[edit]

The material that was recorded here was historically invalid. it was biased and grossly misrepresented the growth and development of this particular branch of learning in the Indian subcontinent. Anyone with basic knowledge of these things could vouch for this. For further information please verify facts available elsewhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Harischandra (talkcontribs) 13:58, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Examples?[edit]

This talks a lot about criticism, but almost not at all about any works—I don't want an ontological debate, but practically speaking, any criticism only exists if works exist, and, as such, showing readers of this encyclopedia entry a practical example or two might be nice. Mention is made of Shakespeare, but only in passing—the word "Shakespearean" without any definite play or poem. Is there no Gawain and the Green Knight example published and ready to use, for example? --Akhenaten0 (talk) 21:34, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Our library at the University of Pennsylvania has 100 items cataloged under "Ecocriticism", so there's a fair number of works out there. I'm not familiar enough with the field to suggest major works, but I've added a Library resources box to help folks find some at their library, or in suitable academic libraries.
