Written Assignment Introduction Draft
Within my written assignment I will investigate the idea of man and animal therianthropy through cultural views and how it has taking its effect on society from accepting a beastly hybrid through many different forms of media and history.
The first source that I will use to evidence my assignment will be Franz Kafka’s “Die Verwandlung“, (1915) (German for “The Metamorphosis“) which is a short novel about a man who wakes up to find himself transformed into this monsterous insect hybrid and how he views his life from now on with this transformation. The second source will be from David Cronenbergs remake “The Fly“, (1986), which portrays a modern aspect of the orginal with a more gruesome and dramtic outcome around the time off when AIDs was a major issue to society. The other main source is about the psychological and mental side of metamorphosis about Hannibal Lecter and the comparison between mental and physical metamorphosis. To conlude this written assignment i will summerise and investigate these sources and more to show my agruement of the relation between metamorphosis through media.
