: that Bevan was a senior and powerful figure in the Labour hierarchy, whilst Foot was, in 1945, a new, junior MP. Secondly, despite his erudition and easy relationship with intellectuals and powerful figures, Bevan remained true to his working-class roots and the community from which he came. Like many middle-class, left-wing socialists, Foot was somewhat in awe of this genuine proletarianism, which appealed to his romantic, idealistic view of the world. Bevan was the defining political figure in Foot’s life. He was more than Bevan’s ‘comrade. He would be his Boswell

Lifting the veil of ‘Inchantment’

/unproductive/reproductive labour hierarchy suggested by The Wealth of Nations, Smith, I suggest, looked back to the Lockean paradigm of labour as self-ownership. As a femme couverte, the wife of a debtor and mother to children defrauded of their inheritance, Smith found in the labour theory of value, I suggest, a means to self-possession through authorship that eluded her in life. If Smith’s engagement with questions surrounding female labour and value tells a very personal story, then in Wollstonecraft’s case the question of women’s work is very much a public concern, the negotiation of which

such, ‘The History of a Gentoo Slave’ can profitably be read as an attempt to recuperate authorship in fiction through a reworking of the division of labour not unlike that attempted in Claims of Literature. Like Williams’s manifesto, Instructive Rambles Extended establishes writing as an analogue for labour in order to argue for the transformative and socially useful role of literature, before subordinating mechanical to intellectual work within the strict labour hierarchy the text constructs in order to assert authorship’s primacy as a morally useful, politically

their power depended on keeping the Arab masses in a state of backwardness. Referring to the armed clashes of 1920–1921 between Arabs and Jews in Jaffa and Jerusalem, he asserted that the Arabs had no right to ‘prohibit the approach of other land and work seeking people to soil which is lying idle’.21 These were to become familiar themes in Labour Zionist propaganda that Poale Zion propagated in Britain. The party members were active in a few constituency Labour parties but the focus of their activity was to establish friendly relations with the Labour hierarchy. At

of the body – and makes ‘maternal femininity’ a discursive positioning in language, a composite of other people’s words. This de-essentialisation could make it possible to represent motherhood as more than the core of women’s identities. Motherhood could become a discursive position within labour hierarchies that could be seen across the lines of racial and class difference. This possibility is something Mulvey’s work in feminist film theory and feminist experimental cinema, the subject of Chapter 6, also suggests. Mulvey’s focus on the collaborative dimensions of
