AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tim Winton is one of the most remarkable writers in the contemporary Australian literary arena. Shallows is a representative work of his early fiction about anti-whaling and environmental protection. This paper, from the perspective of eco-ethics, aims to interpret Winton’s eco-ethical vision with the analysis of ecological crises at the natural, social and spiritual level in Shallows, arguing that the root of ecological crises is “anthropocentricism”, and only after getting out of the spiritual crisis and learning to care and love everything in nature can human beings solve other ecological crises and achieve a harmonious state with nature.'
