C H A P T E R 6 The Case of Wales For the student of comparisons, Wales holds a special fascination as one of those "near cases"—near to, even an integral part of, England in many cultural and social-structural respects, but different in others. It was also near to Scotland and Ireland in that it shared Celtic influences, but had distinctive features of its own and differed from the other two in its relations with England. To commence, then, it is helpful to note some ways in which Wales presents a distinct picture in comparison to England, Ireland, and Scotland

6 Menstrual Symbolism in South Wales Vieda Skultans In 1970 and 1971 I conducted research on the symbolism of female fertility and traditional femininity in a South Wales mining village.

238 Chapter 10 Eastwood and the American Western “High Plains Drifter,” “The Outlaw Josey Wales,” and “Unforgiven” I’ve never pictured myself as the guy on the white horse. . . . I’ve always liked heroes that’ve had some sort of weakness or problems to overcome besides the problem of the immediate script. That always keeps it much more interesting than doing it the conventional way. John Wayne once wrote me a letter telling me he didn’t like High Plains Drifter. He said it wasn’t about the people who really pioneered the West. I realized that there
