Abstract:

Abstract: This thesis examines two important travelogues from the eighteenth-century Anglo-Indian encounter through an ecocritical lens informed by object-oriented ontology. Possible syntheses of postcolonial and ecocritical theory are postulated. Various interpretations of the sublime are considered to demonstrate that moments of the sublime in Jemima Kindersley's Letters and William Hodges' Travels are indicative of intimacy and identification with India and the Indian people. This intimacy with the alien Otherness of India opens a third position of ambivalence in the debate between the monolithic poles of innocent imaginative literature and exploitative rhetorical domestication in postcolonial scholarship.
