Abstract

This paper examines John Milton’s famous pastoral poem, Lycidas, which was published in 1637. There are two basic questions posed in the present examination. First, I would like to explore the ways in which the poem is related to the pastoral tradition, calling attention to certain tensions permeating the tradition. Then I would like to figure out whether it is possible to read the text in the framework of ecocriticism, a critical school having been emerging from the 1990s, promising new ways of investigating the relationship between literary works and the physical world surrounding us. Since pastoral is an important area of study for ecocriticism, the juxtaposition will hopefully turn out to be a productive one.
