AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Helen Tiffin illustrates her argument about the re-imagining of relations between humans and animals with references to J. M. Coetzee's The Lives of Animals and Elizabeth Costello, Yann Martel's Life of Pi and Timothy Findley's Not Wanted on the Voyage. Tiffin concludes: 'Though their approaches to the issue are very different, all regard the connections between linguistic cognition, carnivorousness, and animal sacrifice as areas to be addressed in the conceptualising of less anthropomorphic and imperialist ideas of community'.
