영미아동 환경문학에 나타난 인간과 동물

김덕규

(춘천교육대학교)

Environmentalism and ecocriticism argue that human societies and animals are intricately linked and that the health of one depends upon the health of the other. So, they emphasize the interdependence between humans and animals with respect to the specificity and living rights of the latter. This paper poses a question against the traditional conviction of our society toward the animals and offers a biocentric view of the interconnectedness of all living things on earth instead of the anthropocentric view of human dominance over nature and animals. Young readers with access to good quality environmental literature concerning humans and animals will grow into responsible citizens who truly care about sustaining animal life with both an intellectual understanding of ecology and an emotional bond with animals. And eventually they will be able to have a passion for applying their knowledge and sensibility to the fundamental redesign of the human and animal environment and the maintenance of the web of life on the earth.
