Here society functions as a hive, reacting to forces beyond its control with rammifications and that lead to suffering for the maxed out credit with mother nature. The stakes that ecocriticism is most concerned with are higher than just a “strong six-figure sum”. For the city, its chaos in the boutique shopping aisles. Prices rise as the social climate reacts to external forces, this means a revaluing of resources and points to the structures of society bursting at its seams. This titanic groaning, can be likened to the instance that befell the Titanic. Its bow grating and moaning against a dislodged fragments of nature, that brings the excesses of man’s grandeur to a shuddering and deathly standstill.
