Doing the Honourable Thing: Guy Vanderhaeghe’s The Last Crossing
Abstract:
English Guy Vanderhaeghe's The Last Crossing stages an encounter between the ossified social codes of Victorian England and the seemingly anarchic social codes of the Western frontier and explores the way in which notions of masculine identity and conduct have been shaped by imperial attitudes. This article focuses on Vanderhaeghe's engagement with constructions of masculinity by examining his representation of codes of honour concerning sexual behaviour, physical combat and hunting. Doing the truly "honourable thing" in the novel, the article argues, requires resisting social dictates grounded in rigid assumptions about class, race, and gender.

French The Last Crossing de Guy Vanderhaeghe présente une rencontre entre les codes sociaux ossifiés de l’Angleterre victorienne et les codes ostensiblement anarchiques de la frontière de l’Ouest américain. Le roman explore la manière dont l’identité et le comportement masculin ont été formés par les attitudes impériales. Cet article porte sur l’engagement de Vanderhaeghe à propos des constructions de masculinité en examinant sa représentation des codes de l’honneur concernant le comportement sexuel, le combat physique et la chasse. Cet article constate que dans ce roman, pour faire ce qui est « honorable », il faut résister aux règles sociales fondées sur des présomptions rigides au sujet de la classe, de la race et du sexe.
