In Walpole's day, the post of Prime Minister was not an officially designated one; it was Walpole's enemies, complaining -107- of the disproportionate power he wielded at court and in the government, who dubbed him the country's «prime» minister. They saw his influence as dangerously eroding the traditional authority of the king, already significantly curtailed by the 1688 Glorious Revolution and the subsequent Act of Settlement that formalized certain limits on royal power. And Walpole's critics rightly saw his methods of influence as forever altering the nature of English national government: Walpole developed a variety of bureaucratic and administrative means to exert control of a distinctively modern nature, including an effective system of bartering government posts at home and an extensive network of spies or "secret service men" abroad. At points in his career, Fielding joined such conservative literary figures as the members of the Scriblerus Club (Swift, Pope, Gay, and others) in attacking Walpole, sometimes making him the target of merry ridicule, sometimes suggesting, more seriously, that Walpole presided over a far-reaching degradation of England's culture
But for whatever reasons — a "deconstructionist urge to displace traditional authority," the conjunctions of "colonial space" (in Dennis Lee's usage) and feminine space, the absence of the frontier and its attendant male-centered — 579- myths, a national case of penis envy ("to be from the Canadas," a character in Susan Swan's 1983 novel, Biggest Modern Woman of the World, observes, "is to feel as women feel, cut off from the base of power") — Canadian fiction is strikingly feminine not just in the prevalence of women writers but also in the way in which women's experience and/or writing is regularly validated and sexual polarity is downplayed. Thus the Canadian Kiinstlerroman is typically a portrait of the artist, or the future artist, as a young woman, as in Laurence's A Bird in the House (1970), Munro's Lives of Girls and Women (1971), or Audrey Thomas's Munchmeyer and Prospero on the Island (1971), two novellas published as one novel and contrasting Munchmeyer's and Miranda Archer's different (as even their names suggest) ways toward different careers as writers
