Example text

Charles's wife Ann works for a communist weekly called The Note which spreads scandal about the government in power. One of the ministers involved is Philip March, Mr March's elder brother and head of the March clan. The present scandal is based on falsehood, but Philip March's earlier financial transactions happen not to have been so innocent. The Note threatens to use the scandal of many years ago to give credibility to a lie for its own political purposes. It is in Ann's power to stop the weekly altogether as she has in her hands its private papers which are sufficiently incriminating to cause its suppression if the authorities can get them.

Taking stock of his powers ('he did not have much to go on'), Trilling says that Snow does THE SOCIAL SETTING 31 have a 'sense of social fact'. 33 David Lodge, in an article on jazz in the contemporary novel, notes with slight surprise that Snow has introduced a jazz fan into the stately combination-room of a Cambridge college, and remarks: Sir Charles Snow is no fan himself, one imagines, but he can recognize a new social type when he sees it, and in The Affair (Ig6o) the Cambridge college of The Masters is brought up to date by the introduction of Lester Ince.

In such an atmosphere, his repeated insistence on freedom - and George means THE EXAMINED LIFE 37 sexual as much as political and economic freedom- has a corrupting influence. He gets involved in a financial deal based on fraud and is acquitted after a trial. After a stint with Eliot in the Civil Service (he is judged too odd and uncontrolled, however brilliant, to be permanently retained), he returns to his job as a clerk in his old firm of solicitors. George's progress downhill towards drink and degradation is carefully traced through the series.
