  1. You might be interested that Bate wrote the earlier *Romantic Ecology: Wordsworth and the Environmental Tradition* (London: Routledge, 1991) and that he credits Karl Kroeber with the earliest ecological reading of Wordsworth: “‘Home at Grasmere: Ecological Holiness” PMLA89 (1974): 132-41. Kroeber is also the author of the more recent *Ecological Literary Criticism: Romantic Imagining and the Biology of Mind*. New York: Columbia University Press, 1994 and was (he passed away in 2009) the brother of Ursula LeGuin, masterful sci-fi writer. Just some follow-ups to a very interesting post. Ashton Nichols
