This article focuses on the importance of pastoral parody in . Conceptions of a rejuvenating natural world persist in the novel, but are vigorously and decisively undercut. Pastoral's representative characters, who traditionally cope with their weakness and exposure to hostile elements by constructing consoling narratives, often in song, emerge in as unconsoled wanderers, speaking at length and with great longing of speaking no more. Pastoral is exposed for its contemporary impotence, but the tradition carries on, employed and eschewed within a characteristically self-effacing rhetoric.
