  • ABSTRACT

    This study aims to reveal convergent characteristics and creativity of Eco-poetry. Existing studies on convergence of science and art understand nature as a subject which has an objective truth understandable through scientific methodology. It has been identified that this point of view is opposed to the world-view of art which focused on aesthetic judgement and figuration of nature. There have been some attempts recently to blur such conflictual distinction and communicate across the borderline, but there was a limit to that convergence as it was based on the existing way of thinking of science. This study is about ecological literature as science being integrative, which believes that ecology is an alternative to an inflexible definition of existing science and accordingly has been influenced by ecology. This study gives an example of the convergence of science and art, in particular, mainly with Eco-poetry. Along with that, it gives shape to meaning of convergent aspect of Eco-poetry by deriving creativity of that characteristics.
