An Ecocritical Analysis of George Orwell's Comming Up for Air

Öz:
George Orwell, Coming Up For Air adlı eserinde, hızlı kentleşme ve endüstriyel gelişmelerin doğal çevreyi yok edici etkileri üzerinde durmuştur. Çevre kirlenmesinin sonuçlarını açıkça ortaya koymaya çalışan romanda, doğanın yok olması modern toplumların yalnızca önemli bir sosyal sorunu olarak değil aynı zamanda ekonomik sorunu olarak ele alınmıştır. Roman, insan ve fiziksel çevresi arasındaki ilişkiyi incelerken, insanın doğal çevreden uzaklaşmasının altında yatan gerçekleri de bulmaya çalışmıştır. Doğaya karşı toplumsal bazda sorumluluk geliştirmeyi amaçlayan Orwell, ormanların yok edilmesi, nehirlerin kirlenmesi, kimyasal zehirlenme ve türlerin yok olması gibi çevre sorunları ön plana çıkararak yeni bir ekolojik dünya görüşü oluşturmaya çalışmıştır. Bu çalışmanın temel amacı da romanda konu edilen çevre sorunlarını henüz yeni ortaya çıkan bir edebi kuram olan ekoeleştirinin bakış açısıyla incelemektir.

Öz:
George Orwell's Coming Up For Air concentrates on the disastrous effects of the rapid urbanisation and industrial activity over the despoilation of the natural environment. Perceiving the destruction of nature not only as a serious social concern but also as the major economic problem of the modern industrialised societies, the novel demonstrates the consequences of the environmental deterioration. The prevailing emphasis of Coming Up For Air is a commitment to the exploration of the relationship between man and his physical environment, investigating the underlying reasons of man's distancing himself from the natural environment. Calling for the construction of a social responsibility toward nature, Orwell in his novel brings major ecological issues like deforestation, pollution of rivers, chemical poisoning and the extinction of species into the foreground and hence, provides a new vision of ecological understanding of the world. Therefore, this study will address the major ecological problems introduced in the novel from the perspective of ecocriticism which is a recently developed critical theory.
