In this introduction, the editors set out the state of current scholarship in affect studies and ecocriticism, as well as historicize the body in the twentieth century. The editors argue for a renewed examination of the body in modernist literature as a mode of transforming such scholarship. Presenting a rereading of T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” as example of what innovated approaches may do, the introduction demonstrates the types of inquiries into the modernist body that the collection’s chapters will engage, using both ecocriticism’s body as fleshly, material site and affect’s body as processual “becoming.”

Keywords:   Affect studies, Ecocriticism, Modernist literature, T. S. Eliot
