Title: Hawkeye: an American Hero?
Authors: Ghirardello, Simonetta
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans is to be read as a response to the costant threat represented by the American wilderness more than a celebration of the best qualities of a white American hero. In the light of this European perspective Hawkeye's solitude epitomizes the existentiol void of a non-man living in a timeless non-world. The creation of such a fanciful hero is not the result of an innocent vision of the American wilderness; on the contrary, it is the very product of Cooper's awareness of evil and comes to life as an ideological attempt to exorcize it.
