Editorial Reviews


"Refreshingly original."
—P. F. Williams, Choice
(P. F. Williams Choice)

"In a remarkable new study, Karen Thornber has produced what may well be the most thorough attempt in the English language to catalog and interpret the human response to environmental destruction in [East Asian] literature. Ecoambiguity will be provoking discussion for years to come."
—David T. Bialock, Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment
(David T. Bialock Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment)

"Ecoambiguity develops responsive and responsible scholarship by working within and across disciplines, activating East Asian ecologies as an analytic category. Thornber's challenging and insightful work deserves much praise and will undoubtedly please a large readership."
Comparative Literature Studies
(Hsinya Huang Comparative Literature Studies 2013-04-02)

Honorable Mention, Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment Book Prize for Ecocriticism
(ASLE Book Prize)
