   schema:description ""Canvassing a profuse and dramatically proliferating Wellington, Sinnema examines the various assumptions behind, and implications of, the Times' celebrated claim that the Irish-born Wellington "was the very type and model of an Englishman." The dead duke, as Sinnema demonstrates, was repeatedly caught up in interpretive practices that stressed the quasi-symbolic relations between hero and nation." "The Wake of Wellington provides a unique view of how in death Wellington and his career were promoted as the consummation of a national destiny intimately bound up with Englishness itself, and with what it meant to be English in the middle of the nineteenth century."--Jacket."@en ;
