By Scott Hess

In William Wordsworth and the Ecology of Authorship, Scott Hess
explores Wordsworth’s defining function in setting up what he designates as "the
ecology of authorship": a essentially middle-class, nineteenth-century notion of nature
linked to aesthetics, excessive tradition, individualism, and kingdom. rather than viewing
Wordsworth as an early ecologist, Hess areas him inside of a context that's principally cultural and
aesthetic. The supposedly common Wordsworthian imaginative and prescient of nature, Hess argues, used to be in this
feel in particular male, middle-class, specialist, and culturally elite—factors that continue
to form the environmental flow today.
