Personal profile

Biography

Thomas Wilson is a writer who focuses on the areas of literature and the environment. He has a comprehensive knowledge of the traditions of pastoral poetry and non-fictional nature writing in modern British and American literature. Wilson's most recent book, Stepping Off: Rewilding and Belonging in the South-West (Fremantle Press) is part environmental history, and part answer to the question ‘Where do I come from?’ The author’s previous book, The Recurrent Green Universe of John Fowles, was the first to consider the work of one of the most widely popular post-war English writers, John Fowles, from the perspective of ecocriticism (the study of literature and the environment). Wilson is currently at work on a one volume cultural history of personal rewilding. This book will examine modern English literature and Western cultural history through the lens of the evolutionary science of human health.
