Ecocriticism is the literary way of studying the environment. In this field of study literature scholars get to address concerns regarding the environment and the nature by studying texts related to both. Through the study of literary texts ecocritics deliberate the ecological and environmental crisis that has enveloped us in recent times. Ecocriticism is thus a interdisciplinary field of both literature and environment where one gets to study the way literary experts have dealt with nature or environment. Ecocrticism, known by many other names, including environment criticism, green criticism, green studies and ecopoetics, is coming up as a popular field of study because of the rising concerns for the environment.
