9780226779836: The Rhetoric of English India

Tracing a genealogy of colonial discourse, Suleri focuses on paradigmatic moments in the multiple stories generated by the British colonization of the Indian  subcontinent. Both the literature of imperialism and its postcolonial aftermath emerge here as a series of guilty transactions between two cultures that are equally evasive and uncertain of their own authority.

"A dense, witty, and richly allusive book . . . an extremely valuable contribution to postcolonial cultural studies as well as to the whole area of literary criticism."—Jean Sudrann, Choice

From Library Journal:

Author of the memoir Meatless Days ( LJ 4/15/89), Suleri explores the relation of colonial and postcolonial writers to the experience of India. In chapters on Edmund Burke, E.M. Forster, Rudyard Kipling, V.S. Naipaul, and Salman Rushdie, as well as one on 19th-century women diarists, Suleri examines the textual strategies by which the authors confront the experience of Indian culture. While many theorists focus on the theme of an impenetrable "Otherness" in this experience, Suleri is concerned with a sense of identity and self-recognition in the Other. While her prose is occasionally clotted, her insights are compelling, providing a valuable theoretical model for discussing the confrontation of diverse cultures. For academic libraries.
