Summary
"This volume advances the ecocritical conversation among Latin Americanists, furthering insight into the relationship between humans and their environments, transcending national boundaries by addressing diverse regions. The forms of environmental criticism practiced converge with literary history, aesthetic theory, postcolonialism, and Marxism, broadening the ecocritical approach and providing a strong overview to this growing critical movement"--Provided by publisher
