Summary
Philip Armstrong examines the function of animals and animal representations in four classic narratives: 'Robinson Crusoe', 'Gulliver's Travels', 'Frankenstein' and 'Moby-Dick'. He explores how these stories have been re-worked, in ways that reflect shifting social and environmental forces, by later novelists
