Abstract

The term ‘ecocriticism’ was coined by William Rueckert in 1978 and it was popularized by Cheryll Glotfelty through her 1996 work The Ecocriticism Reader. According to her, ecocriticism is the study of the relationship between literature and nature or the physical environment. Ecocriticism later turned out to be a pivotal area in literary theory. The theory posits that human beings are inherently related to nature. They are dependent on nature in one way or another. For example, air, water, food etc. are inevitable aspects for man. In the same way, nature too is dependent on man.
