Charles Bergman. Orion stands as the emblematic heroic hunter whose prowess is celebrated in the constellation that bears his name. Using the mythic message of Orion as a central metaphor, Bergman examines the role of the hunter & the hunt to define the ways in which men understand & assert their identities. Drawing upon both scholarly erudition & intimate personal experience, he incisively probes how the hunt has permeated male sexuality, making the female both an object of desire & a target of domination. We travel through history to view man as hunter in a dazzling variety of mythological, anthropological, literary, & artistic forms.
