Romantic Naturalists Early Environmentalists from the Author: Dewey W. Hall. In his study of Romantic naturalists and early environmentalists, Dewey W. Hall asserts that William Wordsworth and Ralph Waldo Emerson were transatlantic literary figures who were both influenced by the English naturalist Gilbert White. In Part 1, Hall examines evidence that as Romantic naturalists interested in meteorology, Wordsworth and Emerson engaged in proto-environmental activity that drew attention to the potential consequences of the locomotive's incursion into Windermere and Concord. In Part 2, Hall suggests that Wordsworth and Emerson shaped the early environmental movement through their work as poets-turned-naturalists, arguing that Wordsworth influenced Octavia Hill’s contribution to the founding of the United Kingdom’s National Trust in 1895, while Emerson inspired John Muir to spearhead the United States’ National Parks movement in 1890. Hall’s book traces the connection from White as a naturalist-turned-poet to Muir as the quintessential early environmental activist who camped in Yosemite with President Theodore Roosevelt. Throughout, Hall raises concerns about the growth of industrialization to make a persuasive case for literature's importance to the rise of environmentalism.

The Romance Of Victorian Natural History from the Author: Lynn L. Merrill. The nineteenth century is frequently referred to as the golden age of the amateur naturalist. This study focuses on how the enthusiasm for natural history in the 19th century produced characteristic ways of conceptualizing and visualizing the world--especially the Victorian fascination with particulars-- as frequently seen in Victorian poetry, fiction, history, and textual studies. Arguing for natural history as an influential literary genre, Merrill examines the language and recurrent motifs in Victorian and some American natural history texts-- metaphors of keen vision, preoccupation with scale, and motifs of microscopes, museums, and collecting--and surveys the works of Philip Henry Gosse, Charles Kingsley, Hugh Miller, and John Burroughs.
