ENGL 270 - Nature and Environmental Writers

This course is a literature course with a theme; it introduces the student to a selection of nature and environmental writers.  The class examines nature writing as a unique form of writing.  There are many themes to examine within this genre-how we humans find our “place” in nature and what that means to us, how science relates to literature and art, the complex relationship between wildness and civilization, as well as spiritual issues and environmental issues and responsibilities.
