In this episode of Knowing Animals we are joined by a very special guest, Dr. Susan Pyke from the University of Melbourne. Sue has a PhD from the School of Culture and Communications. Her interests are centred around literature and the nonhuman. Today we will consider Sue’s piece ‘Divine Wings: Literary Flights between the Cyclic Avian in Emily Brontë’s Poems and Oblivia’s Swan Song in Alexis Wright’s The Swan Book’ which appeared in the journal ‘Otherness’ in 2016.
