Waste And Abundance from the Author: Susan Cahill. This collection of articles relates to a research area currently developing in the Humanities, which calls for philosophical and historical approaches to questions of sustainable development and waste management. The title of the issue reflects the central questions raised by all contributors: how are waste and abundance represented, how may we conceptualize these representations, and what ethical problems do they raise? Particular attention is paid to the cultural and moral factors that condition our attitudes to waste and the ways in which literature addresses the problematic relationship that binds production, consumption and waste to social and political systems.

The Literature Of Waste from the Author: S. Morrison. Tracing material and metaphoric waste through the Western canon, ranging from Beowulf to Samuel Beckett, Susan Signe Morrison disrupts traditional perceptions of waste to better understand how we theorize, manage, and are implicated in what is discarded and seen as garbage. Engaging a wide range of disciplines, Morrison addresses how the materiality of waste has been sedimented into a variety of toxic metaphors. If scholars can read waste as possessing dynamic agency, how might that change the ethics of refuse-ing and ostracizing wasted humans? A major contribution to the growing field of Waste Studies, this comparative and theoretically innovative book confronts the reader with the ethical urgency present in waste literature itself.

Inscribing The Environment from the Author: Connie Scarborough. Ecocriticism as a theoretical model has primarily been used in the study of Romantic, post-Romantic, and contemporary literary texts. Applications of the concepts to medieval literature, however, are a fairly recent phenomenon. This book examines key, canonical works from medieval Spain, showing how descriptions of the natural world in these texts are informed by both the authors’ perceptions of the environment and established literary models.

The New Poetics Of Climate Change from the Author: Matthew Griffiths. Climate change is the greatest issue of our time – and yet too often literature on the subject is considered only in the bracket of 'environmental' writing, divorced from culture, society and politics. The New Poetics of Climate Change argues instead that the emergence of global warming presents a fundamental challenge to the way we read and write poetry – the way we think – in the modern age. In this important new book, Matthew Griffiths demonstrates that Modernism's radical reinvigorations of literary form over the last century represent an engagement with key intellectual questions that we still need to address if we are to comprehend the scale and complexity of climate change. Through an extended examination of Modernist poetry, including the work of T. S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, Basil Bunting and David Jones, and their influence on present-day poets including Jorie Graham, Griffiths explores how Modernist modes can help us describe and engage with the terrifying dynamics of a warming world and offer a poetics of our climate.

Words Without End from the Author: Emma Vanhoozer. In Real Presences George Steiner provocatively claims: "It is this break of the covenant between word and world which constitutes one of the very few genuine revolutions of spirit in Western history and which defines modernity itself." As the "high modernist" poet par excellence, I propose to read both of T.S. Eliot's long poems as distinct responses to the similar recognition of a "break of the covenant between word and world." The Waste Land stares into the void of non-reference in despair. The poem polarizes a problematic multitude of voices (i.e. Babel) and the hoped-for single, divine voice of the Thunder. By contrast, Four Quartets not only admits but actively perpetrates linguistic slippage and non-reference. It thereby progresses by way of a poetics of renunciation that resists competing modes of knowledge, including rationality, experience, and the autonomous text. Instead of hoping in the recovery of a divine voice or sound, the poem places its hope in the possibility of dialogue through which the presence of a divine person is intuited.
