Pleasantly idiosyncratic in style (for a Classics professor!) with some first-person accounts of the author’s own encounters with animals in nature, Payne’s book explores what happens when we engage imaginatively through literature with the “being” of another. Perhaps the work in Classics that engages most directly with the post-humanist approaches to Animal Studies in other areas of literature and philosophy. - SUSAN A. CURRY
