Works about this Work

Animals and the Question of Literature Isobel Karremann , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Social Alternatives , vol. 32 no. 4 2013; (p. 21-27)
'This essay considers the social function of literature in the light of the current debate on animal rights. It argues that not only is this debate conducted the realm of literary texts, it is a debate that raises important questions about the value of uses of fiction. While this question is arguably as old as literature itself, and whiles there can obviously be no single answer, the debates and definitions it engenders at any given moment may be taken as symptomatic of a society’s ethical and political condition. One particularly virulent issue today seems to be that of human-animal relations, at least judging by the number of novels and essayistic works published recently that deal with this topic.'
