In Westward to Laughter, MacInnes has done a rash and remarkable thing; he has written an 18thcentury adventure novel for a contemporary audience. On its own merits, the book is morally provocative and entertaining; as a literary imitation, it is quite extraordinary. Toward the end of the book when an English pirate ship is attacked by a rebellious band of native Caribes and black African slaves, Alexander moralizes about the scene and, in a sense, interprets the entire narrative: It seemed to m. .like a kind of fable.
