“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

Very Surprised to Find This Out

 They never told me! But I'm in the Norton Anthology of Theory! I'd been boycotting it for years, because they had nothing in there on ecological criticism. They wrote to me about it about six years ago and I never heard back. Didn't get a desk copy! 

Anyway, here's the citation if you're interested: 

“Introduction: Critical Thinking” (from The Ecological Thought), in Vincent Leitch et al., eds., The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism (Norton, 2018), 2619–2630.
