Research has already proven that "The agreement" is “the earliest prolonged critique in English prose fiction of the wedding industry from a woman’s viewpoint” (Donovan 59). awareness has been interested in the political references and allusions made in "The Contract", and to the gender concerns which are being raised within the novel.
Concerning the previous, Victoria Kahn has reminded us that romances have been used politically throughout the reign of Charles I and the Protectorate (527) and has emphasised the analogy among the wedding agreement and “the hierarchical, inequitable political kin of sovereign and topic” (527). This analogy is mainly legitimate within the modern context of the engagement controversy (1649-1652), “when parliament sought to safe alliance to the recent govt of Cromwell after the execution of Charles I” and a press release of engagement needed to be signed by means of all male electorate (535). based on her, "The agreement" increases questions about the validity (529), the differing kinds of contracts, and the incentive of individuals to signal contracts (526). Kahn has proven that The agreement is a touch upon “contemporary debates approximately political obligation”, a remark that argues for a sort of political legal responsibility “that is predicated on love instead of on filial legal responsibility” (529), and which mockingly makes the royalist Cavendish “draw just about the parliamentarians’ conception of an unique and revocable agreement among the folk and their ruler” (530).
