8-Jonathan Franzen: His Bird Solution

This article examines Jonathan Franzen’s different writings on birds inspired by his intense birding around the world in the past twenty years. The autobiographical approach, close to Derrida’s redefinition of man as a suffering animal and exposition of animal plight, has gradually given way to the ethical fashion of the Great American Novel Freedom (2010) on endangered species and a number of ornithological essays contradicting the Audubon Society’s position on climate change.
