YET what's good in the novel is very good. The intimate cruelty of a modern English family is portrayed with the joyful vengeance, the specificity, of art. The details of Paris in the early 's, and of London later on, are so lovingly, comically evoked that the reader wishes these sections could go on forever.
Most delightful is Miranda's slightly exaggerated, exotic England, as quaint and startling as if described by a magic realist of the Southern Hemisphere.
In portraying the sentimentality of the fading empire, for example, the author has invented a fictitious game, Flinders, which seems to combine cricket and capture-the-flag with a touch of feudal heraldry. This game is Englishness -- English corniness -- personified. Miranda's grandfather, Sir Anthony Everard, is an old Flinders man of great glory, an aristocrat of style and warmth.
He represents the great white colonial patriarchy whose wisdom and generosity are a lamp unto the world, casting shadows that body forth as racism. Perhaps the real protagonist of this book is the British Empire itself, valiant if slightly deaf. As the personification of Empire, Sir Anthony is kind, urbane, witty, handsome, fair-minded, the perfect patriarch. Indeed, more precisely, patriarchy itself is the subject of the story.
Sir Anthony, on his sceptered isle, stands as one of the two poles of tension in the novel -- the other being, on her opposite island, the ancient witch Sycorax, whose occult powers derive from a quite plausible mix of herbalism and common sense. Her fate is to be interred beneath the feet of the white conquerors. Only her voice lingers in the wind to mourn her island. Book Review Tempest in the Caribbean. Log In.
