The essay considers the importance of the semantic of belonging in the novels of Graham Swift, concentrating on Remembrance Sunday, but relating this new novel to all his previous production. It seeks to show how the narrative in his work is driven by a desire to be considered a worthy member of some community, usually a family; inclusion is viewed with success, exclusion is what is most feared, and is a condition that inevitably leads to depression. The article then goes on to consider how Swift's use of language and the way he structures his novels is coherent with this understanding of the narratives.
