Revealing the beast at the heart of English culture, this analysis moves from the Elizabethan Bear Garden to the political upheavals of the 1640s. Engaging with the ideas of William Perkins, Sir Philip Sidney, Ben Jonson, Francis Bacon, Edward Coke and Richard Overton, it highlights the place of animals in early modern perceptions of what it is to be human, and considers the current reconfigurations of our own species.
