Since the publication of Amitav Ghosh’s The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable in 2016 (Chicago University Press), critical attention has been focused on the issues that Ghosh raises in respect to the relation between the art of fiction and climate change. Ghosh draws his argumentation in part on Dipesh Chakrabarty’s “The Climate of History: Four Theses”. This paper explores the degree to which novels of leading English language writers, such as Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Be-havior and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, might be considered representatives of that new genre known as the Ecogothic, a type of the Neogothic. The work draws on the distinction that Chakrabarty makes between the Vi-chianverum-factum and recent accounts of the work-ing of the human in the natural world.
