PhD Research

In response to the growing field of ecocriticism and increased ecocritical enquiry in the West and Asia into ‘ecoaesthetics’, the research considers the problems with and potential value of reading poetry from the perspective of ‘the environment’, questioning the possibility of cross-pollination between the science of ecology and Indian aesthetics and ideas about 'the natural world'.
