Ecocritical article on Pinocchio

Supported by ecocriticism, theories on the posthuman and characteristics of ‘the strange child’, this article examines how the illustrations in various editions of the Pinocchio story present the transformation from a piece of wood (nature) to boy (culture and nature). It also questions which conceptions of the relationships between plants, animals and humans the various representations may encourage.
