Animals, Animality and Controversy in Modern Welsh Writing and Culture

A study of human and animal encounters in Welsh literature.
This book is the first study of the representation of animals, animality, and human-nonhuman encounters in modern Welsh literature and culture. Drawing on new approaches to animal studies, Linden Peach grounds his analysis in the insight that all living things are connected. Through fresh readings of Welsh literature, periodicals, and manuals, Animals, Animality and Controversy in Modern Welsh Writing and Culture explores how the history of Wales might be reimagined from the perspective of animals.
