Résumé

A study of the motif of the dog and the rational animal in Titus Andronicus, The Two Gentlemen of Verona and Timon of Athens. This dissertation is an attempt to analyse a barely studied motif in Shakespeare's drama: the dog. After exploring the cultural meanings of the motif in the plays, the dog will be studied as a motif contributing to the humanist exploration of the definition of man. Aristotle's definition of man as a rational animal is of special interest in this dissertation as it seems that the dog challenges above all the idea of man as a rational being. By challenging man's rational and political nature, the dog brings to the foreground a hybrid definition of man that is rather significant in the contemporary productions of the plays.
