Literature and the Environment

Literary and artistic expressions of the American landscape reveal panoramas of breathtaking natural beauty, but they also help illuminate panoplies of political and aesthetic ideologies that have shifted dramatically over time.  Literary and artistic representations of the environment, in other words, have much to teach us about our selves, our individual and collective beliefs, our history as a nation, and, perhaps most importantly, our possibilities for a global future.
