AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This essay assesses the emerging alliance between postcolonial criticism and ecocriticism in the light of continuing debates on 'Green Romanticism'. It considers what is at stake in contending positions within this debate, what contributions postcolonial writers and thinkers have made to it, and what some of the implications might be of bringing postcolonial criticism and ecocriticism together, both for the reassessment of Romantic ecological legacies and for the 'greening' of postcolonial thought. -- Author's abstract


  • Huggan's essay ends with commentary on Judith Wright, 'a writer who seems ideally suited to the tasks of postcolonial ecocriticism' (4).
