The purpose of this paper is to examine Anna Sewell's Black Beauty which hints at the ways in which empire, women and animals were interwoven in the nineteenth century British society. Horse, presented as the main persona in Black Beauty, becomes the important symbolic site where the social, imperial, sexual and economic desires keep reinscribing themselves. The horse in Victorian era embodies, sustains and defies ideological status signification. The horse's figurative status in construction a national identity and promoting empire reveals the conflicted nature of its function. Particularly animal rights movement gained momentum from the increasing anti-slavery sentiments partly promoted by the women writers. Black Beauty effectively shows that Sewell's critique of the cruelty to horses is strongly related to that of slavery system, women's inferiority in patriarchal Victorian society, and imperialism. However my argument is that Sewell's rhetorical strategy by using speaking horses seems to work as far as to reprimand the problems themselves. Nevertheless Sewell reinscribes racial superiority of white in naming Black Beauty and providing theological and legal rationale for prohibiting animal cruelty with a condition that human superiority should be preserved and boundary between humans and animals should not be transgressed. #말(horse) #여성(women) #제국(empire) #빅토리아 시대(Victorian age) #동물(animals)
