image_mini,jpgElemental Ecocriticism – Thinking with Earth, Air, Water and Fire – now out from University of Minnesota Press, edited by Jeffrey Jerome Cohen and Lowell Duckert.

Brings to ecotheory and the environmental humanities the challenges and possibilities offered by thinking in elemental terms. Decentering the human, the essays collected in Elemental Ecocriticismprovide important correctives to the idea of the material world as mere resource. A renewed intimacy with the elemental holds the potential for a more dynamic environmental ethics and the possibility of a reinvigorated materialism.
