Book the First: SOWINGChapter One: The One Thing Needful The novel begins with a short introduction.

Inside a classroom, "the speaker" repeats the exclamation "Now, what I want is, Facts." He presents the argument that the formation of a child's mind must be rooted in the study of fact.

The second Biblical allusion is along the same lines: one of the New Testament parables makes mention of good Christians as "vessels" who are to be "filled" by God, much as the "dictatorial" Speaker has an "inclined plane of little vessels" that he will fill with his "imperial gallons." Here, the Speaker's imagery and intentions seem so superhuman and yet, misanthropic (anti-human) that he becomes not a parallel but a foil of the Christian messiah (another educator) to whom Dickens alludes.

The speaker demands power without the benevolence, patience or sacrifice that is expected of the role.

Hosted by the obnoxious duo Neil and Bob and lorded over by a panel of delectable judges (Julian Wells and Anoushka) and drunken British rocker Glitter Bolan, all manners of bizarre personalities, inept acts and talentless hacks are encouraged to take the stage to do what they do worst!

The two important allusions to note are both Biblical ones: the use of the word "sowing" does not only correspond to the old proverb "you reap what you sow" but it has a particular resonance with Dickens' largely Protestant English audience.

While the Bible makes arguments for diligent "sowing" in practical and spiritual matters, Dickens' inevitable argument is a defense for leisure¬čagainst the constant diligence, the dependence upon hard facts and the unaccommodating grasp that are later re-cast as the "Protestant Work Ethic" by Max Weber, a philosopher.
