    Ecocriticism and Nineteenth-Century Literature Ecocriticism is the study of representations of nature in literary works and of the relationship between literature and the environment. This chapter examines nonhuman nature in the early novels of Charles Dickens. Although it has been over a century since Louis Cazamian linked Dickens to the idea of the “social novel,” critics still treat Dickens as that novelist whose ethical concerns focus on interrelations between humans: in other words, the “social” realm, particularly the manifold human interactions associated Author: Troy Boone.

    Ecocriticism applies the philosophies behind Emerson and Thoreau and others' nature writing to analyzing nature, and man's relationship to it, in various literary works. Under his tutelage, we learn that nature is everywhere in famous texts, and that we'd learn more if we stopped thinking about these natural objects in purely human terms.   Ecocriticism discusses the relationship between nature and literature. In most types of analysis, nature is overlooked as a viable way of discerning value from the piece. Ecocriticism looks at the various ways the environment interacts with the literature in order to glean a higher understanding of the text. Cheryll Glotfelty, author of The Ecocriticism Reader,.
