Volume: 12 Issue: 3 2022


This study aims to seek the ecocritical perspectives as portrayed in Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor by literary theorist Rob Nixon. Nixon depicts the threats and changes that brought to the environment which are difficult to discern. He proposes the problems and difficulties via attention to the phenomenological structure of social problems. He explains the great threat of the environment to human society as well as the mother earth. He shows the violence brought by climate change, toxic drift, deforestation, oil spills, and the environmental aftermath of war takes place gradually and often invisibly. Nixon focuses on the dire consequences we have paid to the attritional lethality of many environmental crises. He explains how the misuse of natural resources which led to the violence and exploitation. The different circumstances just as the fossil fuel, war and ecological disaster are led the environment to drought and desertification. As a result, a new theory is aroused called Ecocriticism. It is a worldwide emergent movement which came into existence as a reaction to man's anthropocentric attitude of dominating nature. Ecocriticism represents a major tool of analyzing nature writing which is commonly associated with environmental criticism.
