    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 40.95

    Ecocriticism has steadily gained footing within the larger arena of early modern scholarship, and with the publication of well over a dozen monographs, essay collections, and special journal issues, literary studies looks increasingly ’green’; yet the field lacks a straightforward, easy-to-use guide to do with reading and teaching early modern texts... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95
