Abstract
This study unites critical animal studies and OOO-based ecocriticism to create a dark ecological theory that enriches our understanding of the universe and the position of humanity. In the first chapter, I interrogate this theory through an examination of Kipling’s feral child in The Jungle Books. In the second chapter, I examine Jude the Obscure and Wuthering Heights in the context of their current ecocritical and animal studies readings to expand our critical understanding of these works in the light of the theory I’ve constructed.
