LTWR 346 - U.S. Environmental Literature

Units: 3
Explores the U.S. literary and cultural history of the idea of nature. Focuses on the characteristic rhetorical strategies of environmental literature or nature writing - such as claims of spiritual connection and recreation, blending of description and celebration, and direct and indirect political argument. Interprets the texts we read in the context of the long development from agrarian colony to industrial capitalist nation, with the goal of understanding how the way we organize our society and its relation to the environment influences the way we think about nature.  May not be taken for credit by students who received credit for LTWR 431.
