Title: The inescapability of speciesism : the moral consideration of animals in Amitav Ghosh’s The Hungry Tide and Yann Martel’s Life of Pi
Authors: Francisco, Kimberly Ashleigh
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities::Language::English
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: This thesis will then look at how extending equal moral consideration to animals challenges the anthropocentric view of speciesism, which is used to justify harm done towards animals. It will explore how the man and animal binary is constructed in Amitav Ghosh’s The Hungry Tide (2005) and Yann Martel’s Life of Pi (2012) using an ecocritical lens.
