Eco-criticism recap

You’ve seen this already, in Greg Garrard’s essay on the genre of the pastoral. But to remind you, I’ve pasted the 4 criteria *he* cites from the literary critic Lawence Buell, who published a book called The Environmental Imagination, in 1995.

People often think of Miyazawa Kenji as an “eco-critic,” due to his use of folklore, cosmology, and his long-term stint teaching in an ag school. Does “Restaurant of Many Orders” fulfill these criteria, or are there simply too many people to be “eco-“-friendly?
