Greta Olson

Criminals as Animals from Shakespeare to Lombroso

€ 101.15


Criminals as Animals demonstrates how animal metaphors have been used to denigrate persons identified as criminal in literature, law, and science. It traces the popularization of the `criminal beast` metaphor in the late 16th century, the troubling of the trope during the long 18th century, and the later discovery of criminal atavism. It concludes that criminal-animal metaphors influence punitive treatments of prisoners and the poor even today.

poor even today.
