Bugging: The Kaleidoscopic Literary Politics of Insects


Seiler, Nina (2021). Bugging: The Kaleidoscopic Literary Politics of Insects. Word and Text - A Journal of Literary Studies and Linguistics, 11:117-134.

Abstract

This article analyses the appearance of insects in Polish literature of the mid-socialist period. It will elaborate a post-humanist perspective on the peaking presence of flies, wasps, bugs or worms in literary texts both as a motif and as an aesthetic strategy. The article investigates the way the deployment of insects in and through the text modulates the view of and the perspective on their human fellows, and how these modulations can be traced to the social reality of the socialist 1960s and 1970s.
