The relationship between literature and nature has been reflected in the literary works of the cultures of the world. In the last decades of the 20th century, literary theory witnessed a paradigm shift about nature writing when writers began to raise the environmental issues in their writings. As a result of many attempts, Ecocriticism appeared as an academic discipline to focus on the ‘Earth-centric’ approach to nature writing in an age of global environmental crisis. This paper investigates the rise of the environmental literary theory. Likewise, the theory of Ecocriticism, its principles, and aims are explained. Moreover, Ecopsychology, which is the main theory to analyze the poems of Alice Walker, is explained. This paper demonstrates how important renewing of the good relationship between human beings and nature is to make the Earth a joyful place to live on.
