[Extract] The field of ecocriticism is – if you'll excuse the pun – blossoming in Shakespeare studies. Simon Estok (using anoher eco- pun) says that '"Shakespeare and ecocriticism" has become flooded with scholarship.' ('Afterword: Ecocriticism on the Lip of a Lion', in Ecocritical Shakespeare, eds. Lynne Bruckner and Dan Brayton, 2011: 239.) According to Richard Kerridge, it is 'an environmentalist version of English studies' which is now well-established and has been developing since the early 1990s (Kerridge, 'Ecocriticism and the mission of "English"', in Teaching Ecocriticism and Green Cultural Studies, ed. Greg Garrard, 2012: 13).

In this introductory overview, we'll briefly introduce ecocriticism, consider how an ecocritical approach may be adopted in Shakespeare pedagogy, raise some questions and challenges about the implementation of such a philosophy, and provide some useful resources for you to follow up.
