Jane Austen and Animals

Jane Austen and AnimalsJane Austen and Animals

The first full-length study of animals in Jane Austen, Barbara K. Seeber's book situates the author's work within the serious debates about human-animal relations that began in the eighteenth century and continued into Austen's lifetime. Seeber shows that Austen's writings consistently align the objectification of nature with that of women and that Austen associates the hunting, shooting, racing, and consuming of animals with the domination of women.

The Mythical Zoo: An Encyclopedia of Animals in World Myth, Legend, and LiteratureThe Mythical Zoo: An Encyclopedia of Animals in World Myth, Legend, and Literature

In this fascinating encyclopedia about animals in world myth, legend, and literature, author Boria Sax documents how profoundly animals and their symbolism are integrated into human values. In the prehistoric cave paintings of France and Spain—the most ancient works of art we have—humans were depicted as stick figures and animals painted with more care and passion.

The ABCs of Continents

The ABCs of ContinentsKindergarten-Grade 4—These titles vary in their usefulness and complexity. Consistency is a problem. In Continents, seven places are named at the beginning under "The 'A' Continents" when only six begin with that letter, and the "Q" entry is "Quartz," which is a bit specific for a book on this topic. Similarly, the first chapter of Animals is "Animals in Danger," but "Rhinoceros" represents "R." In all of the titles, specific names of things, insects, continents, or animals are mixed with generalized categories like "Habitat loss," for "H" in Environment.
