Postcolonial George Eliot

Postcolonial George Eliot

English | PDF | 2017 | 313 Pages | ISBN : 1137332115 | 3.74 MB

This book examines the range of the colonial imaginary in Eliot's works, from the domestic and regional to ancient and speculative colonialisms. It challenges monolithic, hegemonic views of George Eliot - whose novelistic career paralleled the creation of British India - and also dismissals of the postcolonial as ahistorical. It uncovers often-overlooked colonized figures in the novels.
It also investigates Victorian Islamophobia in light of Eliot's impatience with ignorance, intolerance, and xenophobia as well as her interrogation of the make-believe of endings. Drawing on a range of sources from Eug¨¨ne Bodichon's Algerian anthropological texts, the Persian journals of John Martyn, and postmodern re-engagements, Postcolonial George Eliot has implications for an understanding of the globalization of English, the decolonization of disciplinarity and periodization, and the roots of present-day conflict in the wider Mediterranean world.
