Reading Literary Animals takes a broad chronological sweep, from medieval times to present day, to explore the literary status and representation of animals in literature. Editors, Jane Spencer, Derek Ryan and Karen Edwards have assembled some of the field’s leading scholars to demonstrate how reading animals in literature provokes new ways of thinking. Reading Literary Animals breaks down the old silos and gives answers to some of the most fundamental questions being asked in classrooms today surrounding the presence and absence of animals in canonical works since the Medieval period, including contributions on the works of Shakespeare, William Wordsworth and Ted Hughes.
