Example text

Book Two of Travels does therefore move toward recognizing and reacting against an unnecessarily and limiting disconnect between man and nature, which forms part of the basis of the tradition of theriophily, but it does not go so far as to invert hierarchies that insist upon the superiority of man. The stability of “man” is thus never fully problematized in Lilliput or Brobdingnag, and the extent to which Gulliver is ontologically challenged in these spaces is limited principally by the fact that the majority of creatures he encounters are recognizably human in shape, albeit giant or miniature.

2) does little to disrupt the sense that reason is possessed only by humans. Certainly both of the early books infamously and comically undermine the supremacy and value of human reason, through critiques of little men who go to war over which end to cut one’s eggs or giant men who dismiss Gulliver as a freak of nature because he fails to appear upon their rationalized scale of being. Yet neither book goes so far as to represent reason, however flawed it might be, as operating in animal form, or to depict humans without it.

This chapter’s central interest comes in teasing out the complexities of this multifarious and thorny “creature” in early children’s literature, and in particular exploring how the ontological mutability of such beings foreground, address and variously challenge the emergence of posthuman concerns in early children’s fantasy. The chapter focuses on two “classic” texts that usefully expose the complications of undermining human authority in fiction for young readers, by addressing the creatures of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels (1726) and Lewis Carroll’s Alice books (1865, 1872).
