Cold War Warrior from the Jungles of the Amazon

As Rodney Needham (1983) indicated in his inspiring consideration of the literary figure of Tarzan, the realm of the fictive and imagined is a significant site for the appreciation of cultural practice and proclivity. As Needham rightly emphasizes, Tarzan-like constructions may be understood as offering the vision of premodern freedom that liberates the conventional and rule-bound existence of the "civilized." As a result many such fictions pre-date the Tarzan figure: Rousseau's "noble savage," and its variants, the interest in wolf-children, or even the somewhat bourgeois existence of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, also speak to this fascination with an escape from the mundane and ordered world of modern society.
