Shelley and the Development of English Imperialism: British India and England (Salzburg Studies in English Literature)
Comprising the author's PhD thesis, this volume examines Shelley's Philosophical View of Reform , placing the poet in the context of England's colonial venture in British India. She then examines several major period discourses on India, illustrating how they were later enlisted to serve the English Raj and British imperialism. She argues that Shelley was aware of many of these debates, rejected all tyrannical forms, and was essentially a figure of discontinuity, isolation, and ambivalence. She uses his other writings to elaborate his theories of political justice and to assert that Shelley cannot be indicted for his inability to foresee England's future imperialism. Annotation c.
