  • Introduction: The Rising Tide of Climate Change Fiction
    • Abstract: The call for papers for this collection on “The Rising Tide of Climate Change Fiction” arose from concerns about pessimistic assessments, in recent literary criticism, of the novel’s ability to meet the representational challenges posed by the pressing planetary problem of climate change. The contributions to this volume take issue with that pessimism and take stock of the novel’s capabilities.From the wholesale condemnation of modern literature for the absence of climate change within its pages (Ghosh) to ambivalence about the scalar capacities of the novel (Clark), the pessimistic turn of literary (eco)criticism seems at odds not only with the increasing production of climate change literature itself but also ...

  • Beauty That Must Die: Station Eleven, Climate Change Fiction, and the Life
           of Form
    • Abstract: It is a commonplace that climate change constitutes a formal challenge to the customary rhythms, patterns, and scales of the novel. Still, literary criticism on climate change fiction has so far to a large extent evaded the question of form, and dissolved it into questions of genres and objects. Let’s begin with the recourse to objects. Enlisting the support of object-oriented ontology or actor-network theory, such accounts resituate literature in assemblages of nonhuman, natural, and technological objects with which it colludes in unpredictable ways. In such constellations, literary works function as particular objects, not as formal constructs; they interact with audiences, corporations, sciences, and ... Read More

  • The Rest Is Silence: Postmodern and Postcolonial Possibilities in Climate
           Change Fiction
    • Abstract: Climate change is one of the most prominent symptoms of an age of unprecedented human impact on the biosphere—the age sometimes called the Anthropocene. In identifying humanity as a geological agent, the term “Anthropocene” exposes the fallacy of human exceptionalism, reminding us of the entangled nature of human and nonhuman agency, and the vast and decidedly nonhuman proportions of human action. For, as climate change and other Anthropocene events make clear, the effect of humans on their environment will far outlast human dimensions of individual lifetimes and even historical epochs: some of the impacts of humans’ activity—for example, species depletion—are irrevocable; others, such as polar ice-melt, are ...

  • The Hot War: Climate, Security, Fiction
    • Abstract: Across a broad range of contemporary writings, the problem of global warming is explicitly connected to the problem of global war. In his pamphlet An American Utopia (2016), for instance, the world-renowned Marxist critic Fredric Jameson considers the present erosion of basic public services, the prospect of structural unemployment, and the loss of faith in traditional politics before concluding that the best way forward for American society is “the conscription of the entire population into some glorified National Guard” (29). This remarkable plea fits into a broader diagnosis in which “today, all politics is about real estate” (19)—that is, land and resources—and in which the best if not the most realistic ... Read More

  • Tearing Down the Greenhouse: Visual Ecology, Savvy Critics, and Climate
           Change in T. C. Boyle’s The Terranauts
    • Abstract: T. C. Boyle’s novel The Terranauts (2016) satirizes the events surrounding the construction and operation of Biosphere 2, a multimillion-dollar ecology experiment beginning in the 1980s that had the goal of creating a contained, self-sustaining environment that, beyond its potential applications in space exploration and colonization, could support human life in the event of the ecological collapse of Biosphere 1 (i.e., Earth).1 Boyle attributes much of his inspiration for The Terranauts to a detailed study of Biosphere 2 by Rebecca Reider, in which she explains how the founders of this “glass eco-castle” in Arizona envisioned its operation:[they] packed their greenhouse world with more than 3,800 carefully listed ...

  • From the Grotesque to Nuclear-Age Precedents: The Modes and Meanings of
           Cli-fi Humor
    • Abstract: In a New York Times book review of MaddAddam, the final instalment in Margaret Atwood’s ecocatastrophic trilogy, Andrew Sean Greer notes “[w]hat a joy it is to see…Atwood taking such delicious pleasure in the end of the world” (n.p.). He pinpoints a sense of general cultural fatigue towards the pathos, gloom, and doom so prevalent in contemporary fiction about environmental risks. If critics including Timothy Morton and Michael Branch have lamented the ubiquity of elegiac, melancholy rhetoric in ecological writing and pleaded for more humor in both literary theory and practice, this article turns attention to darkly funny climate fiction from Atwood and Ian McEwan. It asks what sorts of rhetorical, aesthetic, and ... Read More

  • The Novel after Nature, Nature after the Novel: Richard Jefferies’s
           Anthropocene Romance
    • Abstract: It is “in no sense a novel,” Richard Jefferies wrote in an 1884 letter describing the recently completed After London, or Wild England (1885) to publisher C. J. Longman, “more like a romance, but a romance of a real character....You will, I think, do me the justice to say that it is original” (qtd. in Thomas 63). The book so described is indeed “original” in both senses, inventive and strange, as befits its status as a formative work in a new genre: climate fiction. “Cli fi” is usually dated to the mid-twentieth century. Tracing it to Jefferies back-dates it by half a century and, more importantly, refigures its relationship to both literary and scientific history. Rather than following on scientific articulation ...

           Climate Change
    • Abstract: Humanity’s impact on the planet has become so profound that our presence will be discernible as a separate stratigraphic layer, therefore we are—for now still unofficially—living in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene.1 Despite the growing scientific knowledge about the anthropogenic causes and the consequences of climate change—the most salient manifestation of the Anthropocene—little effective action is taken, either by governments or individuals.2 Cultural responses to the problem might help make people care about and relate to it. Writing about climate change and the Anthropocene, however, confronts writers with formal challenges. In this essay we will discuss three novels that seek to capture the temporal ... Read More
