In her Canopus in Argos series, Nobel laureate Lessing creates a "space" fiction universe to metaphorically explore spiritual, cultural and social issues. With debased language, propaganda, and political rhetoric as its theme, Vol. V uses social satire to document the disintegration of a weaker empire as agents from the more powerful Canopus, Sirius, and Shammat compete to manipulate Volyen's citizens; Canopus in Argos: Archives; Vol. 5.
