Virginia Woolf, Jeanette Winterson, and Ali Smith share an ecological philosophy of the world as one highly interconnected entity comprised of multiple and equal, human and non-human participants. This study argues that these writers' texts have an ecological significance in fostering respect for and understanding of difference, human and nonhuman.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book performs the graceful task of creating desire for the actual texts of literature, as well as the actual texts of nature and environments. Reading these chapters, we wonder if we too will perceive the world differently, now that we've understood the rapture possible in offering clear attention to the worlds we live in, and the worlds that live in each of us." - Greta Gaard, University of Wisconsin, USA

'[An] intriguing study... Kostkowska, a professor of English at Middle Tennessee State University, has produced a sophisticated and eclectically argued study of three interestingly interlinked women writers: Virginia Woolf, Jeanette Winterson, and Ali Smith.' Dan Wylie, Partial Answers: The Journal of Literature and the History of Ideas
