ASLE India’s Second Book on Indian Ecocriticism

Ecologically sensitive criticism has been practiced and critiqued in isolation by academics and intellectuals in our part of the world and elsewhere for close to two decades now, however, few significant attempts have been made towards any collaborative venture—towards a theory and practice of eco/logical criticism.

ASLE India’s first book, Nature and Human Nature: Literature, Ecology, Meaning (also edited and introduced by Murali Sivaramakrishnan) had attempted to raise a platform for ecocriticism and theory in the Indian context, and the present volume continues to build upon those theories and traces.

Ecological Criticism for the Present engages with the logic of ecology and rhetoric of the theory, seeking to inquire into its reach in terms of continuity and interdependence.

When ecology and the environment have become catch words often blown and bandied about indiscriminately and casually these days, the essays in this volume lead us to reflect on their theoretical connections and profounder socio-historical depths in unproblematic terms easy to comprehend. With contributions from diverse hands, this book edited and introduced by a leading ecocritic from India, is certainly bound to interest and engage the casual reader as well as the inquisitive scholar.
