Ecocritical Approaches to Literature in French applies the methods of ecocritical inquiry to French literature. To date, there is very little ecocritical scholarship on French-language literature and, indeed, very little on any non-Anglophone literature. This collection was created with two audiences in mind: it introduces an ecocritical perspective for readers of French literature, and it familiarizes ecocritics with literature in French. This collection will be a useful resource to scholars of French and Francophone literature, and of ecocriticism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Boudreau and Sullivan, hearkening to Stephanie Posthumus as the foremost proponent of French ecocriticism, highlight `the importance of the language of expression in writing about nature'. The editors' meditations on treating works as French or francophone draw attention to the value of inclusivity and broadened thinking for a volume that takes inspiration from French interest in inhabited environments. . . .The volume, which is enhanced by the granularity of its nine-page index, ultimately succeeds in offering assorted food for thought about utilizing ecocriticism to enrich our understanding of connections between cultural production and ecological conditions in diverse environments. * Modern Language Review *
Ecocritical Approaches to Literature in French makes a valuable contribution to this growing field. * H-France Review *
"Ecocritical Approaches to Literature in French is a fascinating read, particularly for scholars interested in teaching French literature from an ecological perspective. The contributors offer close readings and pedagogical methods for incorporating specific texts into the classroom, a welcome supplement for teachers at the college level." -- Christie Wampole, Princeton University
"Ecocritical Approaches to Literature in French beautifully illustrates the challenges and promises of bringing together what have been so far two divergent fields: ecocriticism and French and Francophone literary studies. Its range of essays will appeal to colleagues who are looking to bring ecocriticism into the classroom, and who are interested in new readings of work by writers as diverse as Charles Baudelaire, Patrick Chamoiseau, Antonine Maillet, Jean Rolin Jean-Christophe Rufin, and George Sand." -- Stephanie Posthumus, McGill University
