Animal Bodies, Renaissance Culture

By Karen Raber, professor of English

“Materialist scholarship has been fascinated by bodies in recent decades, yet has neglected to consider embodiment exactly where it seems likely to be especially helpful: in the ecocritical study of our connections with other animals. Karen Raber resolves that paradox and solves many of the problems it reflects, in a highly readable study with vivid instances and large implications.”
