'Axel Goodbody restores to Anglophone awareness the hugely influential past of German cultural responses to the rise of science and technology and their effects on attitudes toward the natural world. Everyone interested in modern science and environmentalism needs to be acquainted with this central part of our common history, too much of which has been forgotten since World War II.' - Louise Westling, Professor of English and Environmental Studies, University of Oregon, USA 'Axel Goodbody has produced an invigorating study not only deepening appreciation for well known prose, poetry, and drama, but also drawing attention to lesser known works. He advances transnational ecocritical theory through foregrounding German-language contributions within his highly nuanced orientation. This volume contributes significantly to German literary study and the practice of ecocriticism.' - Patrick D. Murphy, Professor, Department of English, University of Central Florida, USA ' ...a valuable contribution to an emerging topic in contemporary literary studies.' Oxford University Press
