Summary/Abstract: This is a meta-theoretical and meta-disciplinary study on the achievements of ecocriticism and environmental criticism, from the first wave of ecocriticism to the most recent trends, such as material ecocriticism and Timothy Morton’s theories rooted in deconstruction. Ubertowska devotes particular attention to the concept of the ‘environmental text’ developed by Lawrence Buell, the Nestor of the discipline. His concept forms the axis of this review of different positions within ecocriticism and environmental criticism.
