Excursion to Interior: An Appraisal of Deep Ecology in Sarah Joseph‘s Gift in Green
The beginning of new millennium is often heralded as an era of Ecocriticismâ€“a broad movement embraces the interconnections between literature and environment. It is a new critical tool available to critics to analyse literature with a special concern to environmental crisis. What is distinctive in ecocriticism is that, it calls for a fundamental shift from one context of reading to another, specifically from human to environmental. Through this, it promotes a bio-centric world view and broadens human conception of global community to include non human creatures and landscape as well. The scope of this criticism has become large because of its multifarious approach which comprises many sub-theories like deep ecology, nature writing, ecofeminism, environmental justice, social ecology and many more. The present paper attempts to analyse the theory of deep ecologyâ€“a branch of ecocriticismâ€“ with specific application to Sarah Joseph‘s novel Gift in Green(2011).
