Overview for Postcolonial Animal Tale from Kipling to Coetzee

This book offers provocative new readings of animal narratives that have changed the way we think about animals, writing and postcoloniality. It is contended that animal tales are much more complex and political than is generally assumed. By discussing several well-known animal tales by canonical and popular writers in their cultural and historical context, it is argued that animal writing enters the contested terrain of ‘human’ values and ideologies, and that many famous nineteenth-and twentieth-century of race, gender and nation. This volume consists of an introduction and eight chapters dealing with the representation of the animal in postcolonial contexts that seek to demonstrate as to how postcolonial theories can be brought to bear upon narratives usually read in a more conventional manner. The authors studies include Beatrix Potter, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Ernest Thompson Seton, Percy FitzPatrick, Joy Adamson, Gerald Durrell, J.M. Coetzee, Bernard Malamud and Paul Auster.
