Moore Writes Book on Ecological Literature

Dr. Bryan Moore, professor of English, has published a book titled Ecological Literature and the Critique of Anthropocentrism. The book, published by Palgrave Macmillan, surveys and analyzes Western literature from ancient Greece to the near-present that discusses, questions or subverts the widely-assumed but rarely-examined notion that the earth (and universe) exists for humans to exploit at will. This is Moore's second scholarly book.
