Summary
Why did Afro-British writer and abolitionist Ignatius Sancho rail against the abuse of domestic animals in the eighteenth-century London marketplace? Why did Samuel Taylor Coleridge attack the institution of slavery by writing a poem about animal rights? Did William Blake's allegorical depiction of American colonialism as an act of sexual and ecological violence make him an early ecofeminist? When nineteenth-century Ojibwa author George Copway invoked Wordsworthian Romanticism and quoted various European Romantic poets in his autobiographical accounts of traditional Indigenous hunting practices and religious beliefs, was he embracing - or rejecting - the still-influential Romantic ideal of the "ecologically noble savage"?
