Ecocriticism and early modern english literature: green pastures 

By

Borlik, Todd A. 

Publisher: Routledge Taylor and Francis Group

ISBN: 978-0-415-63668-1

Acc. No.: 74342       Call No.: 820.936 B635

Book Description: In this timely new study, Todd A. Borlik reveals the surprisingly rich potential for the emergent “green” criticism to yield fresh insights into early modern English literature. Deftly avoiding the anachronistic casting of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century authors as modern environmentalists, he argues that environmental issues, such as nature’s personhood, deforestation, energy use, air quality, climate change, and animal sentience, are formative concerns in many early modern texts. The readings infuse a new urgency in familiar works by Shakespeare, Sidney, Spenser, Marlowe, Ralegh, Jonson, Donne, and Milton. At the same time, the book forecasts how ecocriticism will bolster the reputation of less canonical authors like Drayton, Wroth, Bruno, Gascoigne, and Cavendish. Its chapters trace provocative affinities between topics such as Pythagorean ecology and the Gaia hypothesis, Ovidian tropes and green phenomenology, the disenchantment of Nature and the Little Ice Age, and early modern pastoral poetry and modern environmental ethics. It also examines the ecological onus of Renaissance poetics, while showcasing how the Elizabethans’ sense of a sophisticated interplay between nature and art can provide a precedent for ecocriticism’s current understanding of the relationship between nature and culture as “mutually constructive.” Situating plays and poems alongside an eclectic array of secondary sources, including herbals, forestry laws, husbandry manuals, almanacs, and philosophical treatises on politics and ethics, Borlik demonstrates that Elizabethan and Jacobean authors were very much aware of, and concerned about, the impact of human beings on their natural surroundings.

Kierkegaard: for beginners

ISBN: 9788125031697

9788125031697

Book Description: The Danish Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard was one of the most original thinkers of the nineteenth century and one of the most enigmatic men who ever walked the earth. Philosophically, Kierkegaard was the “bridge” that led from Hegel to Existentialism. Kierkegaard abhorred Hegel’s abstract, know-it-all idealism that tried to capture reality in a few words. Kierkegaard’s attack on social and religious complacency and his single-handed assault on traditional Western philosophy generated a crisis that produced a radically new way of philosophizing and made him the founder of the school that would later be called Existentialism. To Kiergegaard, reality was personal, subjective-it began and ended with the individual-and philosophy was not something one merely talked about, it was the way you lived. For such a brilliant thinker, the way Kierkegaard lived was…somewhat too interesting? His “abstract” love affair? His obsession with death? His “leap of Faith”, his cynicism, his marvelous sense of humour-how do you put all that into one man? For starter, you read Kierkegaard For Beginners. It explains, plainly and simply, the grat Danish thinker’s obsession with the particularity of human existence as well as his demonstration of how the creation of an authentic new kind of individual is possible.

The ABCs of philosophy – easy to understand but never simplistic.
