Empire Writing:An Anthology of Colonial Literature 1870-1918
Empire Writing is the first anthology to gather together British imperial writing alongside native and settler literature, interweaving short stories, poems, essays, travel writing, and memoirs from the phase of British expansionist imperialism known as high empire. This wide-ranging selection reveals the diversity of responses to colonial experience, and encompasses some of the empire's key symbols and emblematic moments. Comprehensive notes and full biographies ensure that this is one of the most compelling, readable and academically valuable source books on the period.
