Topographies of the Sacred: The Poetics of Place in European Romanticism
Although the British romantic poets--notably, Blake, Wordsworth, and Byon--have been the subjects of previous ecocritical examinations, Kate Rigby's Topographies of the Sacred is the first book to compare English and German models of romanticism. Rigby treats not only canonical British romantics but an array of major figures in Continental literature, philosophy, and natural history, including Rousseau, Herder, Goethe, Schelling, Schiller, and Alexander von Humboldt.
