The Unchaining of the Beast
The introduction to this book examines the social and economic contexts of Britain in the 1880s and 1890s. It discusses the prevalence of metaphors of transformation from human to animal and argues that these reflect a deep unease about changes to the social body. It also shows that these transformations are accompanied by metaphors of different kinds of travel (e.g. social, pyschological and time travel).
