Log-in for full text

In this chapter, the author shows an ecocritical approach in poetry extending outwards into wider areas of cross-arts collaboration. In the event, it seems to have revealed the insights of ecology extending inwards, into the creative process, shared or individual, and into the ways we understand the self. He hopes it has seemed natural to recognise no boundary between creative work done on one's own or in collaboration. The author explains the moral or political imperatives of environmental writing and criticism. He explains how he started to explore the creative process as the terms 'ecocriticism' and 'ecopoetic' made an appearance. He also shows how natural phenomena and processes may offer themselves as a way to see the process of an individual's self, to imagine the self, as an ecology, with disparate elements in shifting but interdependent relationships with each other.
