‘This is an excellent collection, addressing one of the limits of the human as represented in the Gothic, namely the recurring theme of “becoming wolf”. The essays assume a wide variety of perspectives, in which the historical terrors, desires and hopes of the wolf are brought out into the light.’
- Professor David Punter, University of Bristol

‘Illuminating rising popular interests in everybody’s love-to-hate hairy monsters amid the decline of their real-life counterparts, this collection of essays makes a compelling case for investigating representations of werewolves and wolves at the nexus of literary animal studies and the ecoGothic.’
- Professor Susan McHugh, University of New England

'...this stimulating, wide-ranging collection provides a timely and thought-provoking insight into our conceptualization of animals as well as anxieties surrounding our own animal natures.'
- Alyce Von Rothkirch, Swansea University, Modern Lanuage Review
