Author of the widely influential The Environmental Imagination, Buell is a major figure in contemporary ecocriticism. Here, in broadening the scope of his earlier book, Buell blurs the usual distinction between natural and built environments. Exploring how a variety of texts imagine urban, rural, ocean, and desert places, he convincingly argues that literary imagination is powerfully shaped by—and shapes—a single, complex environment that is both found and constructed… Buell’s book is important: it points ecocriticism in profoundly new and welcome directions.—W.
