The Philosophy of ‘Fish’
Knowledge, Christianity, and Humanity in D. H. Lawrence’s Poem
Animals occupy a unique form of experience relative to our own. Our encounters with them often lead to contemplations of human perspective and identity. This essay analyses the human-animal encounter in D.H. Lawrence’s poem ‘Fish’ and the speaker's approaches in comprehending the other. The essay extrapolates this to explore ideas of knowledge and identify the poem's challenges to anthropomorphic perspectives and Christian principles
