This text addresses the question of animal rights in the context of literary criticism. Working from a committed position, it asks the question, "What would literary studies look like if we took animal rights seriously?" It offers critical surveys of the main themes in the history of animal rights and some of the more important contemporary positions together with readings of a wide range of literary texts from classical antiquity to the year 2001.
