Loaded with humour and witticism, Fifth Business is a relentless drama of fast-paced action.Shaped by Davies’s colourful writing, Ramsay masterfully relays the story of his role as "fifth business," the unobtrusive yet vital character in life’s drama.Robertson Davies has made Ramsay memorable, not only as fifth business in the life-dramas of others, but also as a principal actor in his own.For readers like me who do not want to put down the novel – and there will be many who will not – the good news is that Fifth Business is only the first book in the Deptford trilogy.Davies has much to tell us about life and about how we view people, yet Fifth Business never takes on a lecturing undertone.

This close textual analysis has shown how the feeling of despair can be portrayed through a variety of devices.The poem 'The Reflection: A Song' was written in 1684 by Aphra Behn and seems to feature around the theme of realisation and betrayal.Following on, as a female herself, Aphra Behn is able to create a believable female character by using real life concepts such as betrayal.What may have been seen as controversial could be the fact that the poem was written by a woman, especially as this was written in the 17th century.The fact that there is a prominent rhyme scheme makes the poem traditional, as well as the theme being about love.

The story is comic (for example, in the mother’s single-mindedness, and in the daughter’s absurd hope that the recital may be going all right, even though she is hitting all the wrong notes) but is also serious (the conflict between the mother and the daughter, the mother’s passionate love, the daughter’s rebelliousness, and the daughter’s later recognition that her mother loved her deeply).The third paragraph, with its references to the terrible losses in China, darkens the tone, but the fourth restores the comedy, with its vision of “a Chinese Shirley Temple.” The fifth paragraph is perhaps the most obviously funny so far.The belief is further distanced by the fivefold repetition of “You could.” The comedy—perhaps better characterized ...
