Abstract:

During the late 1890s, the British public succumbed to an imperial fervour the like of which has never since been seen. The convergence of intellectual and popular ideas was remarkable. The literature of the age not only reflected and legitimised, but also popularised and romanticised, the dominant ideology of the day. Hitherto, most discussions of the 'literature of imperialism' have concentrated on the work of a handful of late-Victorian and Edwardian novelists and poets. This book includes popular culture and a discussion of anti-empire views. By adopting a much longer chronological context, stretching from the 1830s to the Second World War, the high level of continuity in beliefs throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is highlighted. As a result, the four decades which straddle the turn of the century are viewed as a dramatic episode in a much longer story.
