In her article "Wu's The Man with the Compound Eyes and the Worlding of Environmental Literature" Shiuhhuah Serena Chou discusses Mingyi Wu's novel in the context of ecocriticism's transcultural turn. Chou presents an overview of the cultural milieu in which Wu rises onto the world literary scene and proceeds by examining the problematics and potentials of ecocritical studies' transnationalization. Chou argues that while Wu's desire to understand the local through the vocabulary of the global, his readership reveals a sense of ecocosmopolitanism. The globalized local or localized global in Wu's novel reveals a cosmopolitan sense of the world and the readership of The Man with the Compound Eyes reveals the worlding of ecocriticism as a process of cultural adaptation and translation.
