Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, there was a men’s movement led by poet Robert Bly, the author of “Iron John.” Bly was often featured in TV interviews critiquing modern society and the role of men.

In popular culture, his movement received much ribbing for shirtless men out in the wild pounding drums and making gutturals sound into the night. He bemoaned that modern society offered few rites or rituals to mark the passage from boyhood to manhood.
