(Re)Planting a tree
Logan Horrocks A00372572 December 7th 2015 We don’t normally afford trees the respect they deserve in considering their impact, roles and implications within the garden. Pollan’s chapter Planting a Tree follows his journey and considerations when it comes to properly planting a tree and the multiple perceptions humans have attached to trees. At the beginning of the chapter Pollan references the maple tree as a haven, providing shade, an elevated spot to rest and branches that are accessible to t...

Why Mow?
Logan Horrocks A00372572 Geog. 3329 In Pollan’s chapter “Why Mow?” he discusses the issues he and his father shared when it came to mowing the lawn. Pollan’s father was a busy man, one who didn’t want to spend his free time landscaping. Pollen himself addresses the issue of why we even have lawns in the first place. Would a shrub not occupy that same space, requiring half the maintenance? I myself detest few things in this world more than mowing. Something about wasting a beautiful day, pushing...

Weeds?
Logan Horrocks A00372572 October 12th 2015 (Chapters 6) In his book “Second Nature”, Michael Pollan shares his understanding of “weeds”, or the lack of everyone else’s understanding. “‘Weed’ is not a category of nature but a human construct, a defect in our perception” Michael Pollan, p.98 When considering Pollan’s statement from an academic perspective it dawned on me that in reality there is no such thing as a weed, just plants. Some plants thrive in certain locations while others struggle to...

London’s Airport Expansion
Logan Horrocks A00372572 November 30th 2015 The expansion of the Heathrow airport will best serve the city of London, allowing it to remain a major European hub. This would include the addition of four new runways to the west of Heathrow. Two runways would be added on to the existing ones (though acting as independent runways), while the latter two runways would be added in between the existing ones. (The Economist, 2013) This plan would maintain the width of the noise corridor. Allowing planes...

The Environmental Hierarchy
Logan Horrocks A00372572 December 2nd 2015 Sand dunes are dynamic systems of accumulated aeolian sediment. These systems exist in cyclical periods of stability and instability (Hugenholtz and Wolfe, 2005). Active sand dunes are open systems, they migrate and experience a net loss or gain of sediment. Under the proper circumstances, an active sand dune will eventually transition into a state of stability. During this period, the dune becomes a closed system, remaining in situ while seeing no not...

Strange weather in King Lear
CRITICISM Steve Mentz* St John’s University, New York, USA This article argues that King Lear can help re-shape the emerging discourse of eco-criticism. The play’s focus on human dis-harmony with the non-human environment resonates with recent developments in ecological science like the ‘‘post-equilibrium shift’’. Shakespeare’s representations of dis-equilibrium in the storm scenes can correct eco-criticism’s reliance on pastoral and Romantic visions of harmony. The play’s emphasis on the way n...

King Lear
One element of imagery in use in is that of nature and of what is natural. The significance of this imagery relates to Shakespeare\'s theme of the good and bad sides of nature and of that which is natural. In typical Shakespeare fashion, both sides of nature and the natural are examined and exposed. As an example of this use of nature imagery for exposing the theme, Gloucester\'s natural act of loving a woman turns out to be unnatural and sets up an unnatural obligation for him to honor and an u...
