摘要Ecocritics hired to deliver English language and literature courses in universities and other post-secondary education institutes and in post-secondary learning contexts in both the east and the west focus primarily on English literature and language according to the commitment to teach these courses and subjects in ways that ask how the texts that humans produce,foremost the literary texts that they produce,spectacularly leap,flap,yawp,and howl in response to,in praise of,and in effect in speaking for more-than-human things and beings in our world.In this paper,I discuss"The Dream of the Rood"as a text that not only tells us about two dominant,competing,and eventually amalgamated human civilizations and cultures in England in the period between the fifth and eleventh centuries but as a text that can read according to ecocritical perspectives.In the instance of this poem,as in thousands of other instances in English literature and language teaching,scant notice has been given to it in these terms in introductions to it in critical anthologies of English literature,including in critical anthologies that are most used to teach English literature in universities in both the west and east."The Dream of the Rood,"a durable foundation text of English Literature,and a foundation text in the larger body of western literature known as the western canon,need not be read only for what it tells us about the clash between pagan and Christian peoples in the period of invasion,settlement,and conquest of the British isles between the fifth and tenth centuries.It might also be read and taught,and I forecast that it will increasingly be read and taught,as a text that celebrates the nonhuman and human cyborg identities of beings and as a text that asks us to think about nonhuman and human cyborg identities today who are silenced or marginalized because they stand in the way of dominant"survival of the fittest"hierarchical and speciesist modes of thinking.
