Environmental Awareness and the Design of Literature offers analyses of the diverse ways in which literature helps us escape the rigid frames of commonly assumed worldviews and modes of seeing. Literary works are endowed with a capacity not only to reflect or to mediate, but to resist our environment, and thus to affect and transform our relation to the physical world. Each essay points to the way literature shapes the human perception of environment as intellectual adventures and forays that draw upon a number of historical, aesthetic, philosophical and phenomenological stances.
