It may be that the text, i.e. this contribution, is marked by a (possible) contact ethnology and ecology with literary worlds wherein the syntagm ethno/eco literature may enable understanding of literary works pervaded by ethnological, folkloristic or ecological studies or their spheres, it as well considers the animalistic literature (and essays) – for instance, Ana Horvat's Zahvalnica životinjama (Thanksgiving to Animals) (1998), Macani razni: sastavci, mahom vedri – mic po mic (Tom-Cats of All Kinds: Essays Mainly Cheerful – little by little, kitty) (1996) edited by Giga Gračan, Dora Remebot's Zvjeropis (Bestiary) (2000) – and radical animalistic literature – Bernard Jan's short novel Potraži me ispod dúge (Look For Me Under the Rainbow) (1993) and Goran Majetić's Pisma o (ne)ljudskosti (1. i 2. dio) (Letters of (Non) Humanity/The First and Second Part) (2002, 2005). Thus the triad literature – history – politics (political crisis) has been replaced by an ecological niche (literature – ecosphere, ecological crisis, or, as Lord Ashby defines – climacteric) which expands its ethic towards biophilia and literary ecology (Joseph W. Meeker).
For instance, Kneja: 12 bajkovitih priča (Kneja: Twelve Fairytale-like Stories) (1999) by Lidija Bajuk Pecotić, which were inspired by the writer's collection of stories Z mojga srca ružica (The Rose From My Heart) (1995), may also be read as a fairytale-like short novel that follows walking through the year of a mythical female character Janica and mythical male character dubbed Green George who is known as the Pre-Slavic god of vegetation. It is also a short novel that may be understood as a literary version of a notable ethnological and philological book Walking through the Year: the Mythic Background of Croatian Folk Customs and Beliefs (1998) by Vitomir Belaj. Unlike Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić who, in her (Croatian) Tales of Long Ago (1916) drew a lot from Croatian and Russian (generally Slavic) oral literature, mythology and folk beliefs – Aleksandr N. Afanasyev's Poetic Views of Slavs on Nature (I. 1865; II. 1868; III. 1869) and possibly from Nodilo's The Ancient Faith of the Serbs and the Croats (1885-1890), Kneja seems to go no further than imaginary worlds of the region of Međimurje but refers richly to Nodilo in her Glossary of More Important Terms.
Fantastični bestijarij Hrvatske 2 (Fantastic Bestiary of Croatia 2) (2000) by dr. Hans Christian Zabludovsky and his PR Željko Zorica, where the former is an imaginary alter ego, represents an illusory encyclopedia whose parallel worlds set up a relation between some buildings in Croatia and an imaginary bestiary. As ideosphere, it is ecology that pervades the pages of Fantastic Bestiary of Croatia 2 and rewrites it as an ecological imaginary and ecological fairytale. Eventually, it is an attempt to recognize great Human Fallacy and return to Nature, or, as Glen A. Love notes, nature-oriented literature opens the doors (of perception) leading from ego-consciousness to eco-consciousness.
