    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The essays in this volume examine portrayal of rule, power, law, and violence in medieval and early modern animal epics: along with satirical critique, one can also observe a deeper epistemic engagement with the justifications that validate the political order. The inquiry reveals responses to existing normative systems along with original reflections of the nature of politics.
