Exam Question

For Part 1:
In class we read Steel’s essay “With the World, or Bound to Face the Sky: The Postures of the Wolf-Child of Hesse” in relation to the “Disputation between the Body and the Worms”. With the main point of “human exceptionalism” and “subject vs object” in mind, consider how this essay can be applied instead to either the Franklin’s Tale, The Tain, or one of the Shepherd’s plays. Try to think beyond just the characters owning animals, though you can include this as part of your answer.
