Beastly Journeys: Travel and Transformation at the fin de siecle

Tim Youngs


Beastly Journeys examines metaphors of travel and transformation in a range of texts published between 1885 and 1900. It places these texts in their socio-economic context and argues that their narratives of alteration from human to animal shape, which occur in response to social and economic shifts, reflect changes to the social body.

Keywords: fin de siècle, transformations, beastliness
