The Great Cat Massacre

Dublin Core

Description

Translated into 18 languages to date, this work is delightful read and also gets one thinking about the many ways in which we impose our own cultural assumptions, inaccurately, on previous eras; very useful as a pedagogical tool to get students out of the habit of viewing as transparent texts that are actually quite opaque to our contemporary mentality.
