About the Author

Rebecca Laroche is Professor of English at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, USA. Jennifer Munroe is Associate Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA.


Analysis of the natural world (mice, worms, plants, etc.) and feminist issues (domesticity, gender, the blazon, body shaming) demonstrate the necessity of an ecofeminist approach in Shakespeare. They also successfully situate ecofeminism as a historically essential and traditionally ignored body of scholarship, arguing that scholars who write on race, class, and gender have failed to cite ecofeminist theory despite its decades-long examination of these concepts ... Ultimately, the authors' text offers hope for a reconciliation between what they regard as unequal representations within these unities and alliances, giving ecofeminism equal status in theoretical scholarship and lifting it from its subjugated state. * Renaissance Quarterly *
