In the Welsh The Citadel is the morality tale of the initially idealistic Scottish Doctor Andrew Manson who starts off working in the mining towns of the South Wales valleys view spoiler [ where he makes liberal use of explosives to remedy public health nuisances hide spoiler ] before descending into the vanity fair of fashionable London doctors, who specialise in conditions which cost a lot of money to treat, where he reaches a crisis point before returning to the narrow path of virtue.

In the Welsh Valleys, Manson encounters the diseases of poverty exacerbated by poor housing conditions and industrial injuries, leaving behind the Celtic fringe for the slightly shabby attractions of London he will encounter the profitable diseases of the rich, such as hypochondria, which as everyone with a taste for earning money knows, is best treated with inflated bills and quack treatments.

It is clearly a book of its time. Several kinds of solutions can be offered for this dichotomy. Cronin, who was a Doctor himself, imagines instead something like the Polyclinics of the Soviet Union staffed by a mixed group of medical personnel devoted to the ideal of healing rather than of earning money. Individual virtue rather than structural change is as far as he goes. I suppose this is often the imagined answer because we can imagine that we might, if well supported, be able to practise individual virtue, while massive structural social change seems a bit fantastical, in the event the Second World war occurred and the practise of national mobilisation produced a profound shift in thinking which dominated the country until the end s.

But he tells here a lively story of aspiration and corruption. The Northern Light had more flashes of skill down at the sentence level but suffered from a super abundance of potential plot directions, this is a simple story but that makes for a better book.
