The New Critical Idiom is a series of introductory books which seeks to extend the lexicon of literary terms, in order to address the radical changes which have taken place in the study of literature during the last decades of the twentieth century.

The aim is to provide clear, well-illustrated accounts of the full range of terminology currently in use, and to evolve histories of its changing usage. The current state of the discipline of literary studies is one where there is considerable debate concerning basic questions of terminology. This involves, among other things, the boundaries which distinguish the literary from the non-literary; the position of literature within the larger sphere of culture; the relationship between literatures of different cultures; and questions concerning the relation of literary to other cultural forms within the context of interdisciplinary structures.

It is clear that the field of literary criticism and theory is a dynamic and heterogeneous one. The present need is for individual volumes on terms which combine clarity of exposition with an adventurousness of perspective and a breadth of application.

Each volume will contain as part of its apparatus some indication of the direction in which the definition of particular terms is likely to move, as well as expanding the disciplinary boundaries within which some of these terms have been traditionally contained. This will involve some re-situation of terms within the larger field of cultural representation, and will introduce examples from the area of film and the modern media in addition to examples from a variety of literary texts.

May 06, Greg Garrard's volume in the Routledge New Critical Idiom series, Ecocriticism , is a fascinating read for someone knowledgeable about the field, and -- if introduced carefully -- a useful introduction for someone new to the field. While I've read this book before, I'd never read it start to finish, instead dipping into it and reading isolated chapters as the mood and need struck. I've got some different ideas about it now, which I suppose is a lesson I've learned more than once already, as well as an injunction I've given an awful lot of students over the years: read the damn book. In sum, Ecocriticism is a politically engaged response to the assorted published and in-the-air manifestations of ecocriticism, not a summary of the field.
