Identity, time, and liberation in Aldo Leopold and Ernesto Cardenal
MetadataShow full item record
While coming from very different backgrounds, Aldo Leopold and Ernesto Cardenal use similar methods to promote liberation in their work. In A Sand County Almanac, Leopold uses ethics to establish a sense of identification with nature; Cardenal does so in Canto nacional through the inclusion of nature in the Nicaraguan Revolution. Both authors alter their understandings of time and history to better comprehend the role of the human and natural interaction. Finally, Leopold and Cardenal use these insights to develop theories of liberation that encompass both people and their extended natural communities.
