“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

At Last, But...

At last I've found a book that is somewhat to do with “theory” and literary criticism that discusses ecocriticism. It's Ann B. Dobie's Theory into Practice: An Introduction to Literary Criticism. Only snag: what it proposes in the way of ecological criticism is very old hat. Better than nothing?
