This book is a thorough, eco-critical re-evaluation of Lord Byron (1789-1824), claiming him as one of the most important ecological poets in the British Romantic tradition. Using political ecology, post-humanist theory, new materialism, and ecological science, the book shows that Byron`s major poems-Childe Harold`s Pilgrimage, the metaphysical dramas, and Don Juan-are deeply engaged with developing a cultural ecology that could account for the co-creative synergies in human and natural systems, and ground an emancipatory ecopolitics and ecopoetics scaled to address globalized human threats to socio-environmental thriving in the post-Waterloo era. In counterpointing Byron`s eco-cosmopolitanism to the localist dwelling praxis advocated by Romantic Lake poets, Byron`s Nature seeks to enlarge our understanding of the extraordinary range, depth, and importance of Romanticism`s inquiry into the meaning of nature and our ethical relation to it.
