fans was the song ‘Football’s coming home’ then the significance of the tournament was the intimation that England was coming home to itself. This was one sort of return at least and what the English needed to do, according to the anxiety of imitation, was to assert themselves – but in a self-confident and agreeable way. This anxiety assumes that other national identities are cuddly, likeable and fun and the linkage of this certain idea of England to comparisons of international football support is obvious. The world seems to love Irish or Italian supporters because

fire, anxiety about castration, or the fetishising of weapons may also be illuminated by psychoanalytic interpretation. Michael Selig’s essay ‘Boys Will be Men: Oedipal Drama in Coming Home’ (1978) and Antony Easthope’s critique of The Deer Hunter are examples of psychoanalytic commentary on war films. 14 Gender analysis of American war films has been largely written by

living being and then revert to its previous condition as an abstraction. ‘Night Walks’, one of the essays collected as The Uncommercial Traveller in 1861, describes Dickens’s attempt to deal with insomnia ‘by the brisk treatment of getting up directly after lying down, and going out, and coming home tired at sunrise’. 2 In the course of these night walks he encounters the ‘houseless’ and temporarily shares the condition of ‘houselessness’. The words ‘houseless’ and ‘houselessness’ are no longer current (we would now say ‘homeless’ and ‘homelessness’), 3 a fact

from Corsica was very near at hand. My portmanteaux and bags lay strewn all over my rooms, and Johnson, up to his eyes in packing, was inclined to be irritable. “I can’t think what’s come to that dog, Sir,” he remarked one morning, “a-whining and a-whimpering he is – fit to drive mad.” I also had noticed that Bonaparte seemed restless, and had surprised him more than once staring miserably at the luggage. “Come here, Bonaparte,” I said, “what’s the matter with you today? You surely can’t imagine that I’m going to leave you behind? Don’t you know that you’re coming

I am the sweet tooth, the sugar plantations that rotted generations of English children’s teeth … That is the outside history that is inside the history of the English. There is no English history without that other history. 33

they will be safe and well supported on their return, then they are more likely to accept their deportation. This attempt at persuasion is most apparent in the 15-minute short film Coming Home to Jamaica, funded and produced by the UK government, which showcases ‘reintegration services’ in Jamaica, focusing mostly on NODM (the video was also funded through the Reintegration and Rehabilitation Programme).20 According to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on its YouTube channel, the video is intended to ‘give deported migrants a visual impression of what to expect

-seth [recompense , restitution] by oblacioun / For þe þefte of Palladioun’ (IV.6177–8). In this sense, its narrative trajectory is both fitting and all the more subversive, piling a false oath on top of the theft. Like an insincere speech act in Austinian terms, the Horse is still a gift, but an unhappy one, which both symbolizes and exemplifies the darker cycles of vengeance that characterize the Trojan story. The coming home of these long-laid-down exchanges gives direction to the final sections of Book IV of the Troy Book , pointed especially through the

's veteran status from the war is held up as a clear motivation for his disenchantment. The film provides alternative succour to other movies – Coming Home , The Deer Hunter – as to what the war's and homecoming's real legacy was. An end montage sequence envisages Cathy travelling the length and breadth of America, searching its soul before returning to Simmons's farm and Rachel, hoping to instil something in the young girl – hope, providence – while still surrounded by rancour and recrimination. An economy propped up by the Wall Street boom that had burst in

succeeded by going to work outside the department on free trade policy in Europe's evolving single market. Under New Labour he took a series of permanent secretary positions before ‘coming home’ to head the department. He also watched despairingly as ministers came and went rapidly without any ideas or policies. His department was serially restructured and under constant threat. He saw the best course of action as keeping ahead of his critics by shrinking the department faster than they demanded: Then in 2006/7 we
