These four policies are the FCFS, look-ahead, minimum processing time, and minimum total time policies.
In order to minimize the number of different sets of merged policies to be evaluated, we fix this class of policy to FCFS for every evaluated schema.
Moreover, Lewis characterizes Corinne's genius as emanating from within, a la Shelley in A Defence of Poetry, whereas other scholars, including myself, have argued elsewhere that it is imposed more generally from without--she seems to be inhabited by other forces when she takes the stage, described in terms that evoke the Cumaean Sibyl and the Prophets of the Old Testament ("A Genius for the Modern Era: Madame de Stael's Corinne," FCFS 30: 3-4 and "Articulating Balzac's Genius at the Crossroads of the Nineteenth Century," Excavatio 16: 1-2).
