The conclusion looks at animal imagery in literature of the early twentieth century to see how this develops. It sums up the main argument of the book: that at a time of extraordinary social and economic crisis in the late nineteenth century, metaphors of travel were conjoined with images of physical transformation in texts whose genres, like their subjects, were being stretched. Many of the texts discussed in the book have entered popular consciousness but their economic and social references have largely been erased from the retellings of them.
