The best introduction to the field of ecocriticism that I've come across. More readable than Garrad's.

Buell is a former Harvard professor and is very thorough in his research on environmental criticism, which he prefers over ecocriticism.

This dense book is the third of a trilogy. Like the earlier books (The Environmental Imagination , and Writing for an Endangered World), Buell attempts to map out the evolving field of literary eco-criticism. The book is very dense, showcasing Buell’s encyclopedic knowledge of the eco-criticism field, of any field environmentally related, and of literature over all. The major themes Buell maps out includes the early debates over referentiality (which even he acknowledges are largely irrelevant [...]

Brilliant. Lawrence Buell, as one of the most influential theorists on ecocriticism, has in this book broadened the horizon of ecocriticism. It is a must read for anybody interested in the topic. At the back of the book one can find a very useful glossary with well formulated definitions, which in my opinion adds a lot to the reading experience.
