Example text

An argument could be made to say that this should not be so, that science fiction in fact provides a great deal of what modern critics (say they) have long wanted. Consider for instance one further extended passage, this time from Kingsley Amis’ “alternate world” novel, The Alteration (1976). Amis’ novel is set in a twentieth century in which the Reformation never took place, and the Catholic Church has accordingly remained dominant across Europe (though not America). Near the start he describes the national shrine of this alternative England, St George’s Cathedral at Coverley, Oxford, centre of the English Empire: Apart from Wren’s magnificent dome, the most renowned of the sights to be seen was the vast Turner ceiling in commemoration of the Holy Victory, the fruit of four-and-ahalf years’ virtually uninterrupted work; there was nothing like it anywhere.

It is hard to know how to react to this imagined mosaic. It seems to say: (a) in the alternate world Hockney would have had no need to go into exile, (b) he would have been brought into the center of the culture instead of being marginalized, (c) he would have been a traditionalist not a rebel, and (d) his talents would have been recognized and enlisted for religious ends. So far so good. But (e), perhaps, his homoeroticism would have been suppressed, and (f), even more uncertainly, it would have broken out in yet another way, in portrayals of masculine beauty in a religious mode.

That is what Orwell wants them to do. (3) The narrator’s life-style is a drab one. Whether this fact should be related to his class status, whether drabness is a necessary part of “low mimesis,” these are precisely the themes of the novel (which says in short that they are all related but, very passionately, ought not to be). Just the same, the fact is there, in the “beastly” morning, the “dirty” sky, the “little” square of window, the “bare” patch of garden, the “bluntish” razor-blade, and so on.
