YELIN, Julieta. Kafka, and the Decline of the Animal Metaphor: Notes on the Narrative Voice in "Investigations of a Dog". Anclajes [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.1, pp.81-93. ISSN 1851-4669.

Franz Kafka's animal stories are contemporary with the first philosophic questionings of the so-called metaphysics of subjectivity. This paper proposes an examination of that synchronism through an analysis of the narrative voice in the story "Investigations of a Dog". We start, on one hand, from the hypothesis that, in this story, it is possible to find a particular way of thinking about animals and animality, one that is linked to the task of taking the animal metaphor apart; and, on the other hand, from the idea that this thought enables a dialogue with the reflections of Post-humanist philosophy, that is oriented towards the creation of a non-anthropocentric theoretical perspective.

Palabras clave : Metaphor; Animal; Posthumanism; Franz Kafka; Investigations of a dog.
