Ecology without Culture: Aesthetics for a Toxic World

Christine L. Marran


In Ecology without Culture, Christine L. Marran introduces biotropes—material and semiotic figures that exist for human perception—to navigate how and why the material world has proven to be an effective medium for representing culture. A bold and timely reconsideration of ecocriticism, this book insists on decentering questions of culture to highlight the materiality of poetry, film, and prose fiction.

Keywords: Ecocriticism literature cinema documentary film toxins Anthropocene aesthetics Environmental theory Japan Ishimure Michiko Tsuchimoto Noriaki
