Abstract: The main aim of the article – to ponder upon the particular transformations of literary canon having in mind the parallels of English and Lithuanian poetry of two different periods – the middle of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21 century. Ecocriticism and the main issues of Ecopsychology will serve as a certain theoretical base for various assumptions and comparisons. The problem of literary canon could be treated in many ways, but this time the examples chosen should demonstrate the ability of particular literature to grasp the main rules of the canon and to enrich it without any transformations, to use (consciously or not) its “carcass“ in order to inspire “the plot“ of literature itself with new power of thought or emotion. While speaking about the perspectives of so called distant reading and rethinking the aims of those interested in comparative studies Franco Moretti explains the relationship between “foreign“ and “local“ in native literature: “For me, it’s more of a triangle: foreign form, local material – and local form. Simplifying somewhat: foreign plot; local characters; and then, local narrative voice…” (Moretti 2000). Moretti was speaking about the novel, but the scheme indicated could be valid for other genres as well. So this assumption will be checked after short analysis of the texts of Lithuanian and English poets
