The present world is facing eco-disasters and the environment is now at stake. As a consequence ecologically oriented literature pleads for a better understanding of nature and eco-criticism emerged as a revisionist literary movement. Eco-criticism studies the relationship between literature and the physical environment. In Assamese Literature also, a good number of writer deal with eco-critical texts who tries to reflect burning ecological problems like species loss, pollution, global warming, toxicity, deforestation, etc. But the study of Assamese Literature from the eco-critical perspective is rare. Therefore, Eco-critical study of Assamese literature is very relevant and essential. This paper tries to give an overview of ecological text in Assamese Literature.
