      After all, thrusting mediocrity rises to the surface in almost every sphere the current Labour cabinet is an excellent example. This new context, in my view, adversely affected the tone and structure of the last novel. Nonnus' descriptions of the four seasons, as translated into French, are closely followed by Poussin: "on the left is Spring, with a garland of roses in her hair; at the back is Autumn, whose hair has been cropped by the winds but whose brow is wreathed with olive branches; Winter is next, with her bound hair and shadowed face, and at the front is Summer, dressed in white with ears of corn in the braids of her hair. It's this creativity, together with the comedy of everyday life, that sustains the Dance The sequence is also remarkable for its astonishing characterisations.

      Although the quality and enjoyment of each book varied individually, when taken as a whole the novel shines. Jenkins notes that the incident was something of a signal that the friendship between Stringham and Templer has come to an end as each move into their respective futures far apart from each other. Nicholas Jenkins, a nonparticipant who is secure in his own values, narrates much of the action of people obsessed with power, style, creativity, and public image. What, then, is the central theme of the series?

      The experiences of a man chained to a desk, writing words a day, are hard to animate. Not only was Poussin's art derided by new generations of up-and-coming artists, but art critics began to turn against it as well. He mentions a child but never gives its name and except for a few brief references to a son he almost totally ignores his existence. Yet, with the arrival of Romanticism things began to change.
