封面
Patrick D. Murphy, Terry Gifford, Katsunori Yamazato
Taylor & Francis, 1998 - 490 頁
Sixty-five contributions discuss historical and contemporary nature writing--nonfiction, fiction, and poetry--in the US and Canada; Europe; Asia and the Pacific; Africa and Arab nations; and Latin America. An additional section considers the literature thematically and cross-culturally. Sample topics include the mountain in 20th- century French literature, woman and the land in the Romanian agrarian novel, war and environment in African literature, and science fiction as environmental literature.
