Three religious-political debates on the Industrial Reformation, and how those debates bleed into formal difficulties for the "problem novels" of the time: free-will vs. determinism (on plot, character); family vs. society (on how the relationship between family and society is metaphor or metonymy); facts vs. values (on representation, political and literary).

Kind of a fable about what awkward inconsistencies your convictions will lead you into.
