Engaging with Nature


This collection of essays looks at the interaction between humans and nature, at medieval ideas and conceptions of nature, and at the use of animals and the natural world as literary and cultural devices. Topics include the physical dependence on and influence of man on nature through agriculture, the symbolism of the hunt, the use of animals in literature to discuss delicate subjects, and natural equilibrium in medieval philosophy.
