Werewolf Complex: America’s Fascination with Violence
Denis Dudos (a.); Amanda Pingree (trans.). Addresses such questions as: Why are there so many serial killers in the U.S.? Why is American culture permeated with violence & cruelty? Why should Jekyll & Hyde & the werewolf myth have such appeal in North Amer. culture? Dudos provides an unexpected answer: he demonstrates that the representation of on-screen violence reflects America’s deep-seated belief that society is only a fragile rampart holding at bay the beast latent in us all. He argues that cultures which do not share this fear of hidden barbarity will remain unaffected by American-style violence. However, Dudos warns that if people do come to believe in the primacy of these primitive instincts, their children will have good reason to emulate what they see on screen.
