Contenu

This class will introduce students to two recent prose collections by contemporary Scottish writer Kathleen Jamie; Findings (2005) and Sightlines (2012). These two texts demonstrate Jamie's responses to a wide variety of landscapes in the 21st Century and raise important questions about humanity's relationship with the natural world. Through close reading, we will be looking at Jamie's representation of the 'natural' in both of these texts, considering the difficulties inherent to defining nature, and addressing where the texts can be situated in relation to the wider framework of 'new nature writing', which has come into prominence in recent years.
