In The Walls of Jericho he casts an almost anthropological eye on it, saying that:. As a matter of fact, the habitual dissension between these two was the symptom of a deep affection which neither, on question, would have admitted Words and gestures which in a different order of life would have required no suppression became with them necessarily inverted, found issue only by assuming a precisely opposite aspect, concealed a profound attachment by exposing an extravagant enmity. And this was a distortion of behaviour so completely imposed upon them by their traditions and society that even they themselves did not know they were masquerading 5.
He writes:. It was only because the hostility of these two was actually an elaborate masquerade, whereby they concealed the most genuine affection for each other, that they could come so close to blows that were never offered. Yet to the observer this mock antagonism would have appeared alarmingly real He is not only an able physician and an intellectual, but a benevolent authority figure: Fisher remarks casually of his first two patients one Sunday morning that the first pleaded a bad cold and got his liquor prescription, the second pleaded hard times and borrowed three dollars All my training and all my activities are those of a detective.
