Glimmerings of ecofeminist theory that would emerge a century later can be detected in women's poetry of the later Victorian period. Patricia Murphy examines the work of six "proto-ecofeminist" poets - Augusta Webster, Mathilde Blind, Michael Field, Alice Meynell, Constance Naden, and L. S. Bevington - who contested the exploitation of the natural world. Challenging prevalent assumptions that nature is inferior, rightly subordinated, and deservedly manipulated, these poets instead "reconstructed" nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An important contribution both to the growing field of interdisciplinary scholarship on ecofeminism in literature and to a new wave of fin-de-siecle studies that seeks to revisit and reconfigure the period by challenging twentieth-century modernist assumptions about late-century literature and culture."--James Diedrick, Agnes Scott College, author of Mathilde Blind: Late Victorian Culture and the Woman of Letters
"Performs an important function in reclaiming some non-canonical writers who, nevertheless, were generally much better known in their period and who, it is convincingly argued, can speak to contemporary ecological concerns."--John Parham, University of Worcester, author of Green Man Hopkins: Poetry and the Victorian Ecological Imagination
