Abstract

In The New Nature Writing: Rethinking the Literature of Place, Jos Smith explores the various contemporary permutations of ‘New Nature Writing’, emphasising throughout the complex relation between literary production and environmental activism. The book does important work in helping to institutionalise ‘New Nature Writing’ in an academic context, writes Rebecca Pohl, but the particular selection of texts suggests that the genre needs to further interrogate its own politics of representation. The New Nature Writing: Rethinking the Literature of Place. Jos Smith. Bloomsbury. 2017.
