REVIEW ✓ Rule Britannia Urba la uiete del luogo di lì a poco un folto gruppo di soldati di nazionalità incerta comincia a risalire dalla spiaggia verso l’interno; segue uno sparouesto è l. Marines at Manderley The entry into Europe was a flop a disaster So what happened A general election with the country hopelessly divided then a referendum and finally the Coalition Government we have today which has seized on the idea of USUK as a drowning man clutches at a straw Frankly Daphne du Maurier s final novel is a minor work probably only three stars for most readers Yet to me personally it rises to four stars going on five It was published in 1972 the year I moved to America from Britain yet I well understand the context of its diametrically opposite theme the takeover of Britain by America And as my uotation shows it has a curious contemporary relevance in the immediate aftermath of BrexitDu Maurier once had a family home at Menabilly on the south coast of Cornwall In her most famous novel Rebecca it is called Manderley Here it is reborn as Trevalan home to an aging retired actress known only as Mad her granddaughter Emma six boys of different ages that she has adopted and her former dresser Dottie who acts as cook and housekeeper This particular day dawns however to the sound of airplanes and helicopters overhead a total communications blackout and US Marines securing the streets of the nearest village Poldrea The economic fallout from this early Brexit has been so bad that the government has sold Britain lock stock and barrel to the United States forming a new entity that someone with a deaf ear has decided to call USUK The historic reunion is to herald a glorious era of mutual prosperity not to mention the provision for American tourists of what amounts to a vast historical theme park There are just a few pockets of misguided resistance to be neutralized firstAn absurd premise of course yet highly productive for a satire since it has than a glimmer of truth There has always been a strong resentment of the American presence in Britain despite gratitude for their role in the Second World War exacerbated by increased commercialization and Britain s awareness of its own decline In 1972 American intervention had got a particularly bad name from the debacle in Southeast Asia not least for their failure to win the hearts and minds of the people they had come to help In 2016 whatever the justification and successes we need look no further than Ira and Afghanistan To British eyes the clean cut courtesy of the US Marine could appear as much a threat as a gesture of friendshipAt the beginning du Maurier is writing within a familiar trope the feisty inhabitants of a small community generally on the Celtic fringe who successfully oppose the attempts of some central authority to undo their traditions an example might be the 1947 Compton Mackenzie novel Whisky Galore or the movie made from it Certainly the cast of characters who might come out of the TV series Doc Martin fits totally into this tradition the homespun farmer whose sheepdog is the first casualty of the invasion the local fisherman the recluse with a checkered past who lives in a shack near the beach and of course the six boys aged three to eighteen each with a particular handicap each with special reserves of loyalty and skill And the portrayal of the Americans is in a similar vein such as the portrait of Martha Hubbard chair of the Cross Cultural Committee a pleasant looking woman of about forty five with a rush of teeth to the head She shows up smile and all a few days later teaching a demonstration Bible class at the local school Jesus it appears is now to be part of the curriculumBut then a real death occurs and suddenly we are in uaint comedy mode no longer Du Maurier s style does not greatly change but now she has a new literary model that of the WW2 Resistance novel Not that the Marines are euated to Nazis but there is the familiar pattern of punitive overreaction that only further polarizes the local population And du Maurier also escalates further much further to the point where it seems impossible for her to bring the book to an appropriate conclusion Of course she does end it and the ending seems the right one But it is very sudden we learn what happens but not how it happens This than anything else is what would have sent me down to three or even two stars if my historical and stylistic interest in the book had not risen to four or fiveWhich seems a curious misreading doesn t it Not of American culture where evangelical Christianity was presumably as strong a force then as now but of its constitutional separation of Church and State The Supreme Court ruling on the unconstitutionality of Bible readings in public schools came only in 1963 so perhaps du Maurier was working from earlier experience of the country More likely though she was portraying the situation as a kind of extra territorial Guantanamo where
