Abstract

Harnessing new enthusiasm for Nan Shepherd's writing, this book asks how literature might help us to reimagine humanity's place on earth in the midst of our ecological crisis. The first book to examine Shepherd's prose and fiction through an ecocritical lens, The Living World reveals forgotten details about the scientific, political and philosophical climate of early twentieth century Scotland, and offers new understandings of Shepherd's distinctive environmental thought.
