Product Description


'... impressive work... Dorre combines a wealth of cultural-historical material with innovative readings of nineteenth-century texts... make[s] significant contributions to our understanding of the place of the animal in Victorian literature and culture.' Journal of Victorian Culture '... this is a thought-provoking and worthwhile book, alerting us especially to the vitality and complexity of Victorian fiction, and its exuberant use of metaphor as a descriptive, structural and socially-critical device. What Dorre analyzes as the 'displacement' of gender and class anxieties onto the body of the horse, produces a rich and complex symbolic language that she has in part decoded for us.' Anthrozoos
