Yet upon reflection, one soon begins to wonder if the novel is not deceptive in its

arguments in favor of the tyrannical life. On the other, the case for tyranny is
understated by the action of ...

Although, with its overt political subject, this novel concerns itself with public
matters in the way that her earlier novels do not, it can still be read as a
continuation of Emecheta's earlier preoccupations with the more private problem
of female autonomy in such novels as Second-Class Citizen (1975), The Bride

Emecheta as a feminist or at least an emerging feminist. Yakini Kemp, however,

Gissing treats "the warfare above" as an analogue for "the warfare below" and
describes private matters as reflections — even embodiments — of public ones.
Jessica Morgan's transformation of a private romantic encounter into a coarse
business deal reiterates and reconfirms the elision of public and private life that is
at the heart of Gissing's novel.28 Like Meredith's rendition of the slide from love to
larceny in the scene in which Percy Dacier uses his knowledge of parliamentary

secret history flourished. While this form did not disappear altogether, its
characteristics altered in response to changing political circumstances and
literary tastes. The bedchamber intrigues of private citizens replaced those of
monarchs and ministers.28 So, for instance, most of the 'secret histories' by the

Agathocles, Francesco Sforza, Cesarc Borgia), and the treatise's intended

the proponents of William of Orange — all those who have abandoned the
hereditary (if not quite the providential) argument in their rationalization of power.
