Example text

Here, as in Shakespeare's Tempest, which the novel echoes, communal relations are treated as profoundly sacred. And in retrospect, it would seem that it is to this conclusion that Spencer has all along been leading usin its deepest sense community equals communion, with all its spiritual connotations. Thus, when readers trace Spencer's career from the early popular novels to the present, they discover steadily increasing technical sophistication coupled with richer and more intricate studies of community.

She will in later novels expand the focus on traditional marriages to include intimate groups of three or more individuals. She will also focus her study of extended groups on the internal impact they have on individuals rather than on their external melodrama. As these themes become more complex, Spencer will use a series of experimentsmultiple narrators, shifts in time and point of view, imagery used to control developmentto capture precisely the fictional medium that mirrors her message. Fire in the Morning, in other words, inaugurates a series of efforts on Spencer's part to portray the dynamics of communal existence, internal as well as external.

Spencer writes that "about the Gerrards there was a thickness that had nothing to do with measurement, as marked in Lance's tall frame as in heavy Simon. It seemed that flesh, vein, muscle and bone, instead of finding a separate life and play within the larger, living body, each defining the other, were in them all matted and solidified together, affecting an imperceptible shortening or concealment of joint and tendon, a layered depth of skin" (78). The physical imagery suggests an immoral bloatedness: flesh ''matted and solidified," limbs shortened or concealed, and "a layered depth" of deceit and greed.
