Challenges the notion of how early modern women may or may not have spoken for (or even with) nature. By focusing on various forms of 'dialogue,' these essays shift our interest away from speaking and toward listening, to illuminate ways that early modern Englishwomen interacted with their natural surroundings.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an important collection.The editors make a powerful case for the centrality of a revised ecofeminism to both feminist and ecocritical scholarship. And in support of their project, they have assembled a first-rate collection of original essays that are grounded in meticulous historical research and subtle textual analysis and informed by mindful attention to present experience and its political implications." - Phyllis Rackin, professor emerita of English, University of Pennsylvania

"Expands and updates an essential field within environmental scholarship. Moving beyond ideological abstractions, it pays illuminating attention to the particularities of life, especially women s lives." - Robert N. Watson, Distinguished Professor of English, UCLA and author of Back to Nature: The Green and the Real in the Late Renaissance

"[This book] is at once an homage to Sylvia Bowerbank's Speaking for Nature and a passionately engaged critique of prevailing assumptions about ecocriticism, feminism, and language. The provocative and innovative essays gathered herereframe current understandings about the nature of women's participation in early modern culture and probe the relationship between the natural world and the man-made power relations of early modern England. This collection also packs a punch in its trenchant readings of early modern texts ranging from Paradise Lost to women's diaries and recipe books. The book's message is powerfully urgent and immediately relevant tothe most pressing concerns of our own time." - Dympna C. Callaghan, William Safire Professor of Modern Letters, Syracuse University
