New Agrarianism and the AcademyeBook - 2011
Issues of ecology & mdash;both as they appear in the works of nature writers and in the works of literary writers for whom place and the land are central issues & mdash;have long been of interest to literary critics and have given rise over the last two decades to the now-firmly established field of ecocriticism. At the same time, a new group of ecology advocates has emerged since the 1960s: contemporary agrarian writers such as Wendell Berry, Wes Jackson, and Gene Logsdon draw their basic premises from the Nashville Agrarians of the 1920s and 1930s, and focus strictly on the actual intersections.
