Abstract: “Wildness” is a term of excess. The range of words more or less synonymous with the word wild is also, say, excessive. Wild: untamed, savage, ferocious, feral, unbroken, native, agrarian - so much Word for Windows Thesaurus. It also means uncultivated, growing in natural conditions, easily startled, uncivilized, violent, uncontrolled, desolate, waste, unsettled, madly enthusiastic, disorderly, reckless. What makes this term attractive from the point of view of literary or cultural criticism is the possibility of its application, and of analysis of its application, to a very broad range of discursive practices from and equally broad range of perspectives.
