About this book

Empire and the Animal Body: Violence, Identity and Ecology in Victorian Adventure Fiction develops recent work in animal studies, eco-criticism and postcolonial studies to reassess the significance of exotic animals in Victorian adventure literature. Depictions of violence against animals were integral to the ideology of adventure literature in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. However, the evolutionary hierarchies on which such texts relied were complicated by developing environmental sensitivities and reimaginings of human selfhood in relation to animal others. As these texts hankered after increasingly imperilled areas of wilderness, the border between human and animal appeared tense, ambivalent and problematic.

Media reviews

"An excellent inquiry into the inscription of environmental violence in imperial adventure fiction and its bearings on the genre's popularity. Lucid, rigorous and assured, it promises to be a foundational text at the juncture of Victorian studies, ecocriticism and colonial history."
– Dr Anthony Carrigan, Keele University
