“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Another Essay

Okay, the New Literary History one is quite stable now. So it's time to get to work on “From Modernity to the Anthropocene: Art and Ecology in the Age of Asymmetry.” This is for an issue of a sociology journal with essays on “the future of whatever” (not the real title!) by Fredric Jameson and others.
