Summary
"India exerted a powerful grip over the imagination of British authors during the Romantic period. But what was the true nature of their engagement with the Subcontinent? This study argues that depictions of India had to come to terms with India's strangeness and distance from Britain, as well as the aesthetic requirements of European culture"-- Provided by publisher.
