Harlan Lane has really written two interlocking books on this material. The first relates the VictorItard story and includes a wealth of documentary evidence collected and translated for the first time. Yet for a reader not familiar with Itard's original reports.

This beautifully written book by Harlan Lane tells the complete story of Dr. Itard's successes and failures with “l'enfant sauvage,” a story immortalized by director François Truffaut in The Wild Child (L'Enfant sauvage). Lane takes the reader into the central philosophical and scientific debates of the nineteenth century and sheds new light on questions that persist for our own time. Which human activities require social instruction and which do not? Is there a critical period for language acquisition? To what extent can education compensate for delayed development and limited endowment? What are the critical features of effective training methods?

VICTOR. One of the arresting stories of French history is of the abandoned boy discovered in 1797 in the forests of Aveyron, who had been living wild for some years, who was captured and brought to Paris and who for six years was the sole student of Dr. Jean Marc Gaspard Itard, who attempted to bring the boy into the human community by teaching him the use of language. Victor de L'Aveyron, as he came to be known, arrived in Paris with many of the eagerly-discussed questions of the time billowing around him. What is the human in isolation? What is man in the savage state? What are the gains and losses of the civilizing process? Victor was a walking philosophical question--the answers to which, as his education progressed, kept rolling just out of reach. What can be captured in part is the human drama, the relation between Victor and Doctor Itard, as well as Itard's remarkably intuitive teaching skills; almost the best part of the tale is watching Itard create a pedagogy day by day, as the meanings of Victor's responses appear and shift. It's a story of wonderful particulars of the France of its day, and of historical importance to the history of education and medicine, but also of the human inheritance we all have title to. Itard's own reports are available in English (THE WILD BOY OF AVEYRON, translated by George and Muriel Humphrey, Meredith Publishing, 1962) and the French texts are included in Lucien Malson's LES ENFANTS SAUVAGES (Editions 10/18, 1964). Two excellent books are Harlan Lane's THE WILD BOY OF AVEYRON (Harvard, 1964) and Roger Shattuck's THE FORBIDDEN EXPERIMENT (Farrar Strauss Giroux, 1980). Lane's book is the more detailed and has an exhaustive bibliography; Shattuck is the more graceful storyteller. Mordicai Gerstein's novel VICTOR (Farrar, Strauss, 1998) is less interesting than the non-fiction accounts. In the 1970 film "L'Enfant Sauvage," Francois Truffaut brought his own nuance and sensibility to the story: when, in Nestor Almendros's ravishing black-and-white photography, we see Victor dance in the moonlight, it's eerie and moving beyond words, and it hints at ecstacies a cultivated man like Itard knows not of. Maybe those mad old Romantics weren't all wrong.

I first read THE WILD BOY OF AVEYON while a sophomore in college. Itard's short paperback was recommended by my sociology professor (Lynn Nelson). Although I changed my major six times, THE WILD BOY OF AVEYON was the catalyst for finding my new home in the Sociology Department. I was excited about my new major and was delighted to pursue extra and non required reading. In the end, THE WILD BOY OF AVEYON opened my eyes to the profound impact social forces have on the person.

During the spring semester of 2010, I had an opportunity to return to teaching sociology after 20 years of teaching social work. In recalling interaction with Professor Nelson, I decided that requiring freshmen and sophomores to complete a book report would be a good strategy to appreciate and/or hate sociology. After a search on Amazon, I learned that Itard's original THE WILD BOY OF AVEYON was out of print. I was distressed that my students would not be able to read the same book as I did. Instead, I found Lane's version of THE WILD BOY OF AVEYON. I was disappointed until I read it.

Lane's work is a carefully crafted piece that includes much of Itard's original work plus writings of Itard's contemporaries. Unlike the original, Lane is able to take a step back and assess the long term implications of Itard's work with Victor. The reader with acquire commentary addressing the issue: Was the boy left in the wild by his parents because he was mentally retarded OR did the wild reduce this child into a state of mental retardation? The answer was left to the reader in Itard's original work. Lane does not specifically answer the question but does an exceptionally good job in guiding the reader to intellectual comparisons (see page 179).

Lane's version of THE WILD BOY OF AVEYON is a profoundly important piece of literature for the introductory study of sociology. However, it is not an easy read for freshmen. However, all who seriously read this fine book will become intellectually sharper. They will see the coercive forces of our social structure in a different light and will be challenged to understand the impact that social isolation has on individuals.

Lane has done us a real service in collecting all of this primary-source material into one place. Much if not most of this book is extended excerpts of original documents from 2 centuries ago. Some people might not like reading all of this old and stiff prose, but it gives us the most authentic picture possible of what was going on at the time.

The inclusion of the deaf-mute discussion, while not everyone's cup of tea, illustrates two important points. First, questions of "human nature" were being approached from a number of directions simultaneously even 200 years ago, and some of these insights actually bore some fruit. Some of them were silly and even insulting, but people did not yet know what was what, so they had to try a lot of things. Second, out of the study of children like the wild boy, and deaf-mute children, some really innovative and important teaching methods emerged. Again, people had no idea how to explain or intervene with these cases until recently, and a few brave and thoughtful individuals began to find humane and effective treatments and training methods that we all benefit from today.

Everyone interested in human nature or the early days of social science should grapple with this book.
