The Environmental Imagination: Thoreau, Nature Writing, and the Formation of American Culture

Cambridge, MA: Belknap Press: An Imprint of Harvard University Press, 1995. First edition. Hardcover. Association copy, inscribed to a colleague on the front free endpaper in the year of publication: "For Mason and Susan Lowance, in friendship and respect, with many long memories. Larry Buell, 5/4/95." Mason Lowance was a distinguished professor at U Mass Amherst; an early Americanist and the author of 13 books, he was honored with a Guggenheim fellowship among many other awards and honors. Particularly relevant to Buell's work, he was the author of The Language of Canaan: Metaphor and Symbol in New England from the Puritans to the Transcendentalists (1980). He also wrote extensively about slavery and abolitionist literature. A few notes in Lowance's hand in pen on the verso of the front blank, as well as some underlining on the first two pages and in a few later pages; one faint water spot to top of text block, and a dust smudge to lower text block at corner, otherwise a fine book in fine jacket. Buell is one of the foremost ecocritics, this book often cited as an early and instrumental work with Thoreau at its center, but myriad other environmental writers discussed and referenced.. Near fine / Fine. Item #948
