Eric, thanks for your emmocnt on Furr. I think you're right, wolves have gone from predators to underdogs and in the process we root for them. I also think you are right that they are easy to anthropomophize (sp?) because they are social, agressive, and nurturing - just like us. It is a good song - I found a video of Blizen Trapper playing Furr one of the late night shows - can't remember which. Its probably easy enough to find on YouTube. Are you carrying any of these themes forward in your dissertation?

Patterns of change in anthropomorphism would certainly be an interesting topic to explore in a dissertation. For my dissertation I'm studying literature of crime and punishment in the colonial and early republican periods. I found your website through the Commonplace website. A panel on anthropomorphism at a conference would be a great idea. It would be worth thinking about...
