Abstract

Between the Lines is a PhD thesis in two parts: a non–fiction memoir entitled And I Miss You Like The Dead and a critical commentary that explores the environmental themes that influence the landscape the memoir is set in, and the ethics within the wider Nature Writing genre. And I Miss You Like the Dead follows the discoveries of family history that are unveiled after the inheritance of an old farm on the Carmarthenshire borders and entwines this with the narratives of the breakdown of a relationship and the protagonist’s decision to stay in this landscape and continue on with the family business of organic growing. The critical commentary consists of three main questions that discuss the genre with which the memoir could be included in, and looks at wider questions within environmentalism, nature writing and the practical differences between living and writing environmentally.
