Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


This project examines the relation between ‘the anthropocene’ seen from a philosophical perspective and contemporary, young, Danish poetry. Based on Timothy Morton’s object-oriented ontology, this project presents analyses of two ecocritical poetry collections: Digte 2014 by Theis Ørntoft and Avatar by Caspar Eric. The analyses investigate how the awareness of the climate crisis is expressed in their literature. Furthermore, the role of literature is discussed in a climatic context. The project concludes that crisis awareness is expressed in a break with the anthropocentric hierarchy.

Keywords: Climate Crisis, the anthropocene, object-oriented ontology, ecocriticism, literature, the mesh, strange strangers
