Drawing on interviews with Lévi-Strauss himself, research in his archives now held at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and conversations with contemporary anthropologists, Wilcken explores and explains his ideas, revealing the man behind them to be a writer and artiste manqué, who injected an artistic sensibility into academia, using imagery and ideas worthy of a poet. He remains a giant of the twentieth century."@en ;
