Summary
Literature and Nation disects the relationship between Britain and India from 1800 to 1900, using key literary and historical texts. Books from Kim to Mansfield Park and Midnight's Children are used in conjunction with primary source material to better understand the complicated cultural encounters that occurred between the two countries. Chapters range from "First Cultural Encounters" to "Poetry and Nation" to "Nostalgia and Disillusion." With comprehensive introductions to the sections by the editors, this book is a necessary addition to Post-colonial studies
