This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book investigates the interchange between the natural world and eros, especially where queer identity and sexual freedom are concerned. It offers a reconsideration of Percy Shelley’s The Sensitive-Plant with respect to the nature of intersexuality. The book focuses on Shelley’s theories of what “causes” the love between men, and his speculation that Greece’s climate may have been a causal factor in the normalization of pederasty, shows how nature and human culture are entangled. It also focuses on queer objects by shifting from place to the anomalous human form. The book illustrates the ground-floor ecology – how an earth-household should ideally operate on a day-to-day basis – propounded in some of Mary Shelley’s post-Frankenstein fictions. It utilizes “eros” as shorthand for any form of sensuous unification.
