His stories? Narratives and images of imperialism
Gail Ching-Liang Low pages -


This article draws on Klaus Thewelweit’s Male Fantasies as a source of psychoanalytical insights into the structures of nationalist and military masculinities, though it cautions against the too-easy identification of Thewelweit’s men of the pre-fascist freikorps and the authoritarian and imperialist subjectivities of Victorian men. Rider Haggard and others must be seen as a specific reproduction of the culture of the radical right in Britain at the turn of the century, not as facsimiles of Thewelweit’s later German soldier males.
