    In a key passage, Martha explodes: 'An individual's loss of faith and a nation's loss of faith, aren't they much the same? Harrison gathered his facts from books, letters, and maps. The atlas book format is much easier to manage than a fold-out map. Martha is an unusual character.

    Castles developed throughout this period in response to the changing demands placed on them. A Baudrillardian world of mimicry and theme-park falsity threatens life itself, England book argues, because it cuts away at our capacity England book seriousness. They were fought between two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet, the houses of Lancaster and York. England has, naturally, already been reduced to theme park status, but it is a spread out, hard to navigate theme park, with too many irrelevancies and too much distance between sights. Barnes's deep theme is the search for authenticity. She is hardly ever satisfied, and she is very cynical -- though her cynicism never seems excessively hard or harsh, and is by and large the appropriate tone for the very cynical world she moves in.

    By emphasizing history over art the usual subject for novelists to tackle England book this context he also gives the book far greater resonance. It's what they call a romp but it is written in anger. For the sake of simplification, however, in the novel old English folklorecustoms and legendsbut also historical facts, are altered to fit the overall purpose of the Project. As the property gets closer to development, he says he needs to find a new space that works.

It is 'everything you imagined England to be, but more convenient, cleaner, friendlier, England book more efficient'. By having his characters uninhibitedly subvert all of England's long-standing customs and traditions, Barnes inadvertently also collects, registers and critically assesses these myths.

And there are enough books about England and England book history to satisfy even the most avid reader. Martha's ultimate recognition of the emptiness of such dialogue, and of the artificial England book she comes to inhabit and, for a while, rule over is convincingly presented.

Their method England book that of the sworn inquest, by which answers were given to a long list of definite questions. Formal sessions were apparently held in the chief county town, and the facts were supplied by the sheriff, the barons, and their subtenants and by representatives from each hundred or subsidiary division of the county and from every village.

By which time, I felt, Barnes's satire had curdled into an exhibition of self-pity reminiscent of a meeting of the UK Independence Party. As a fervent patriot, he wants to put England in a nutshell for all the world to see and to cash in on England at the same time: he does not mind that the real thing takes a turn for the worse and eventually deteriorates.

Julian Barnes takes this familiar idea and spells it out as simply as he can, concentrating not on the irrelevancy that is art but on matters which matter more, the greater reality of the world stage, of history even, and what these have become in our modern theme-park world of imitation.
