This chapter investigates the aims and scope and methodological underpinnings of ecostylistics, against the background of ecocriticism, ecolinguistics and stylistics. The theoretical and methodological frameworks outlined in the first section of the study are subsequently applied to the analysis of Amitav Ghosh’s novel The Hungry Tide (2005). More specifically, a close ecostylistic reading of three extracts from the novel through Systemic Functional Grammar (SFG; Halliday & Matthiessen 2014) will be functional to unveiling the power hierarchy built up in the texts between human and non-human Participants.
