Starting with the eighteenth century but focusing on primarily the nineteenth century through the present day, these essays two sets of differences: the multifarious modes of representations that have materialized from the publication of Gulliver's Travels to The Hunger Games, and the range of animal lives, and human-animal relationships, that have emerged over this time. The collection is divided into three sections that focus on some of the most noteworthy relationships and prototypical representations and themes over the past three centuries: 1. depictions of domesticated animals, with their emphasis on nonfiction and identity; 2. imaginative reconstructions, with their focus on authors' self-conscious acts of creation in the age of Darwin; and 3. contemporary modes, with their interest in the posthuman and their specific aim to both cross and merge the animal-human divide"--"@en ;
