Renaissance Ecology: Imagining Eden in Milton's England

Faculty Member: 

Description: 

These essays consider how writers and artists such as John Milton imagined, by way of Eden, a future where human beings would live in greater peace with the natural world. This impressive collection, which includes contributions by such eminent scholars as Barbara Lewalski and Diane McColley, takes an exciting, new, 'green' approach to representations of Eden, while also considering the role of gender, politics, and poetics, discussing relevant issues of both literature and culture.
