What MH Abrams demonstrates in The Mirror and the Lamp is the way in which we turned from the renaissance, and classical notions of art as a reflection of nature.

Critical Thinking in Literary Analysis by Barnhill, David L. However, critical thinking can be applied to art, and literature (including nature writing) always has political dimensions (whether or not the author and the texts focus explicitly on political and social issues).
