Ecocriticism and Old Norse Studies: Nature and the Environment in Old Norse Literature and Culture

Rein­hard Hen­nig / Emi­ly Leth­bridge / Michael Schulte (Hrsg.)

Eco­crit­i­cism and Old Norse Stud­ies is the first anthol­o­gy to com­bine envi­ron­men­tal human­i­ties approach­es and the study of pre­mod­ern Nordic lit­er­a­ture and cul­ture. The chap­ters gath­ered here present inno­v­a­tive research based on the most recent devel­op­ments with­in eco­log­i­cal­ly informed lit­er­ary and cul­tur­al stud­ies. Cov­er­ing a wide vari­ety of sources, the vol­ume pro­vides new insights into the Old Norse envi­ron­men­tal imag­i­na­tion, show­ing how pre­mod­ern texts relate to nature and the envi­ron­ment – both the real-world envi­ron­ments of the Viking Age and Mid­dle Ages, and the fan­tas­tic envi­ron­ments of some parts of saga lit­er­a­ture.

Col­lec­tive­ly, the con­tri­bu­tions shed new light on the role of cul­tur­al con­tacts, tex­tu­al tra­di­tions, and inter­tex­tu­al­i­ty in the shap­ing of Old Norse per­cep­tions and rep­re­sen­ta­tions of nature and the envi­ron­ment, as well as on the mod­ern recep­tion and (mis-)use of these ideas.

The vol­ume more­over has a con­tem­po­rary rel­e­vance, invit­ing read­ers to con­sid­er the lessons that can be learned from how peo­ple per­ceived their envi­ron­ments and inter­act­ed with them in the past as we face envi­ron­men­tal crises in our own times.

While Ibsen’s plays were sel­dom per­formed in Roma­nia in the first half of the 20th cen­tu­ry, his­tor­i­cal sources high­light his strong impact on the nation­al the­atre prac­tice. To address this con­tra­dic­tion, Gian­i­na Dru­ta approach­es the recep­tion of Ibsen in the Roman­ian the­atre in the peri­od 1894–1947, com­bin­ing Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties and the­atre his­to­ri­og­ra­phy. This inves­ti­ga­tion of the Euro­pean the­atre cul­ture and the way in which the for­eign act­ing and stag­ing tra­di­tions influ­enced the Roman­ian Ibsen­ites pro­vides new insights into mech­a­nisms of aes­thet­ic trans­mis­sion. Thus, this study presents a Euro­pean the­atre land­scape whose unpre­dictabil­i­ty and unique­ness can­not be con­fined to essen­tial­ist inter­pre­ta­tions.
