"Reconnoitering the Rim":: Contravening the Bonds of the Traditional American Western through David Milch's Deadwood

 
9783846536254:

The American Western genre in film has spanned the better part of a century, and its attributes have evolved from the classic in the early 1900’s, to the contemporary-revisionist in the late 20th century. Traditionally, the American Western, through its revisionist subgenre born in the 1950’s, has retained the same linear narrative structure of the classic Western as a means to deconstruct the romanticized myth of the American frontier. The revisionist Western subgenre transformed the American Western hero into the anti-hero through revealing his flaws, and the post-revisionist Western of the 1990’s accentuated the anti-hero’s sense of moral ambiguity. The major aim of this study was to use the theme of emergent order in David Milch’s Deadwood as a tool to discuss the deconstruction of the romanticized myth of the American frontier, and the reconstruction of the Western genre through the contemporary-revisionist Western.
