Hysterical Women and Wild Animals: Parallels in the Construction of Female and Animal Alterity

Resumen


In the present paper I aim to explore the connections between the discourses that structure female difference and those that structure animal difference by documenting three major convergence points: denial of reason, denial of language, and the insistence that both female and animal bodies are inherently wild, the origin of their difference.
