- Explores how Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian" encourages, more than identification with, but an impressing oneself within "the kid," and makes all of his adventures with Glanton and his outriders a ride we thrill at, even if at times very much secretly -- as with the slaughter of the indigenous camp. Glanton is a phallic "hero" for us; it is the impression of the desire for that, that the text foremost advances, the singular and exceptional that we can associate with, borrow esteem off of.
