Not to be rude, but what, might I ask, does any of this have to do with Northrop Frye?
Frye wrote extensively on our relation to nature and included our love for and identification with nature among what he identified as primary concerns. He spoke grimly about our exploitation and poisoning of the ecosystem and regarded it as threatening to our very existence. It was in this context he succinctly observed that, in our time, “primary concerns must become primary, or else.”
I have posted on this a few times, most notably on Canada Day, where I pulled together quotes from Frye detailing Canada’s relentless assault on the wilderness, which suggests that nature remains something “we do not love.”
