Book Description:

Thought in the past to be divine, animals have played an active role in human culture since prehistoric times. Sometimes domesticated, never conquered, and serving as both prey and predator, animals are an integral part of the human experience. Even today, animals wield symbolic powers as varied as the cultures that embrace them.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. A love letter to the animal kingdom, calling for animals to be reclassified by tradition and mythology. From Aesops Fables to Mockingjay, animals have always played a pivotal role in human culture. In this fun and thought-provoking book, historian and animal enthusiast Boria Sax argues for a classification of animals that goes beyond the biological to encompass a more meaningful distinction: tradition. From ants and elephants to tigers and tortoises, The Mythical Zoo weaves together a cross-cultural tapestry encompassing mythology, history, art, science, philosophy and literature. The result is a beautifully illustrated, masterfully composed love letter to the animal kingdom. Bookseller Inventory # AA79780715647325
