Summary
"Bridging Brazilian cultural studies and environmental humanities, Land That Seemed to Us Quite Vast examines images and meanings of nature and landscape in contemporary art and poetry in Brazil. It identifies general tendencies in aesthetic modes of environmental thinking and representation, and it includes studies of established figures such as Manoel de Barros and Frans Krajcberg and representatives of a newer generation, including Josely Vianna Baptista and Nuno Ramos. This study reveals a diverse range of artistic responses to heightened awareness of environmental change and vulnerability in Brazil, including efforts to directly connect art with issues and activism and more abstractly oriented explorations of concepts animating or unsettling conventional understandings of the environment. While attuned to particularities of their Brazilian context, Land That Seemed to Us Quite Vast makes a case for considering these poets and artists as participants in eco-cosmopolitan movements to rethink through artistic practice relationships between the human self and more-than-human environments" --
