This book explores the political co-operations and textual connections which linked anti-colonial, nationalist, and modernist groups and individuals in the British empire. Boehmer significantly questions prevailing postcolonial paradigms of the self-defining nation, syncretism and mimicry, and dismantles still-dominant binary definitions of the colonial relationship.

About the Author:


Elleke Boehmer is Hildred Carlile Professor in English at Royal Holloway, University of London. She has published Empire Writing (Oxford World's Classics, 1998), Empire, the National and the Postcolonial 1890-1920 (2002), and critical editions of Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys (2004) and Cornelia Sorabji's India Calling (2004). She is also the author of short stories and three novels, most recently Bloodlines.

Review:


"This formidably well-researched and carefully documented book demonstrates the strengths of a complex comparative methodology in postcolonial studies."--The Yearbook of English Studies


"A timely work, and indeed part of a growing and welcome movement towards historicization in postcolonial studies.... Valuable in the way it foregrounds neglected texts, and suggests new possibilities for reading and novel critical perspectives on late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century literatures in English."--English Literature in Transition 1880-1920


"Stunning.... Boehmer's task is remarkably important: to produce a genealogy of anti-colonial resistance from the ground level at the height of British imperialism and trace with great precision the interactions 'between peripheries.'"--The Minnesota Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Empire, the National, and the Postcolonial, 1890-1920 explores the political co-operations and textual connections which linked anti-colonial, nationalist, and modernist groups and individuals in the empire in the years 1890-1920. By developing the key motifs of lateral interaction and colonial interdiscursivity, Boehmer builds a picture of the imperial world as an intricate network of surprising contacts and margin-to-margin interrelationships, and of modernism as a far more constellated cultural phenomenon than previously understood. Individual case studies consider Irish support for the Boers in 1899-1902, the path-breaking radical partnership of the Englishwoman Sister Nivedita and the Bengali extremist Aurobindo Ghose, Sol Plaatje s conflicted South African nationalism, and the cross-border, cosmopolitan involvements of W. B. Yeats, Rabindranath Tagore, and Leonard Woolf. Underlining Frantz Fanon s perception that a colonized people is not alone , Boehmer significantly questions prevailing postcolonial paradigms of the self-defining nation, syncretism and mimicry, and dismantles still-dominant binary definitions of the colonial relationship.
