Granta 102: The New Nature Writing Summary
As long as people have been writing, they have been writing about nature. But nature - as we know it - is changing. Economic migration, overpopulation and - most significantly - climate change are shaping the natural world into something unfamiliar. Instead of providing a respite from the urban landscape, the natural world now reflects our mistakes; our abuse; our politics. As our conception and experience of nature changes, so too does the way we write about it. "Granta 102" will be a seminal collection, addressing lost worlds, vanishing species, the race for control of the Arctic and the popularisation of man-made art intended to replicate the aesthetic experiences we once found in the wild. The contributors to this book include Robert Macfarlane, Jonathan Raban, Richard Mabey, Geoff Dyer, Nadine Gordimer, and Isabel Hilton.
