From the first trading ventures of the East India Company to the 1830s, Britain's involvement with the subcontinent was reflected in English literature. Spanning almost two and a half centuries, this landmark work of post-colonial studies closely examines the depiction of India in the work of, among others, Milton, Dryden, Shelley, Southey, Mill and Macaulay. Learned, sophisticated and wide-ranging, Rajan's study analyses the tensions, self-deceptions and contradictions at the heart of the imperial project.
