The Imperial Experience From Carlyle to Forster

by C. C. Eldridge

Part of the Context and Commentary Series

The Imperial Experience From Carlyle to Forster Synopsis

This book examines attitudes towards empire and the creation and perpetuation of a British world-view during the years 1834-1924. Besides focusing on the usual Victorian and Edwardian novelists and poets, surveys of popular culture and anti-empire views are also included. By adopting a longer chronological context, the high level of continuity in beliefs and actions throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is highlighted. As a result, the period is viewed as a dramatic episode in a much longer story.
