After a short introduction by Dr. Erchinger, lecturer in English literature at HHU, who specializes in nineteenth century poetry and prose, the intellectual history of the arts and sciences and, increasingly, the ecology of literary work and whose most recent book Artful Experiments is due to appear in 2018,
Teresa Krull will present her thesis “Shaping Nature –Wordsworth, Clare, Morris”
Her thesis offers an engaging and inspiring contribution to current debates in literary ecocriticism and environmental thought. Combining close reading and theoretical work, it explores the various ways in which ‘nature’, certainly one of the most complex and colourful concepts in any language, is made to appear in and through poems and prose texts by William Wordsworth, John Clare, and William Morris.
