Ecocriticism is the emerging academic field which explores nature writing and ecological themes in all literature. Thomas M. Wilson's book is the first to consider the work of one of the most critically acclaimed and generally popular post-war English writers from an ecocritical perspective. Fowles is best known as a novelist and author of such works as The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman and Daniel Martin. Going beyond the fiction, this book also examines the many profound reflections on the natural world found in his essays, poems and his recently published Journals. John Fowles' writings have cast light on the ways we perceive the natural world, from curious scientific observer to Wordsworthian lover of natural places, as well as many other important and, at this time, crucial themes. This volume will be of interest to critics and readers of contemporary fiction, but most of all, to anyone curious about their place in the recurrent green universe that is our earth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Thomas Wilson's work deserves to be read widely, not only by Fowles scholars but also by non-specialist, intelligent readers interested in their place in the natural world." - James Aubrey "Ecocriticism is becoming an extensive and rapidly-expanding field of literary study, and Wilson is working at its forward edge, with an important modern figure who is both creator and critic within this field. Wilson has made a significant contribution to this field, with careful attention to the classical, continental, British and American literary backgrounds of pastoral and nature-writing, as well as the related contributions by philosophers, scientists, and artists. His coverage of Fowles is thorough and insightful. He has read widely, and he has also met and talked with Fowles, read his unpublished essays, walked in his native place and garden, and spent time studying at a nearby English university... I congratulate Dr. Wilson for his achievement." - Glen Love
