László Krasznahorkai (b. 1954) is a Hungarian novelist known for his melancholic-dystopic themes and post-modern prose. He has received considerable critical acclaim, notably winning the Man Booker International Prize in 2015. He initially became famous, to a wider audience outside Hungary, through director Béla Tarrs adoption of his novels. Satantango is his debut novel and chronicles the miserable lives of a rural community on the brink of extinction. It is infused with religious imagery, grand ideological implications about Communism and philosophical musings. This papers thematic analysis is modest in comparison. It concerns what purposes the anthropocentric representations of animals serve in the text. This quite literal element have been neglected in previous research. The paper
centers around a few key concepts such as: allomorphism, anthropomorphism, mechanomorphism, speciesism and zoomorphism.
