List of Illustrations Acknowledgements Bridging the Divide Strange Relations: Evangelical and Anthropological Roots of Imperial Anxiety The Juggernaut Roles in England: The Idol of Patriarchal Authority in Jane Eyre and The Egoist Failed Colonies in Africa and England: Civilizing Despair in Bleak House Mutinous Outbreaks in The Moonstone Portions Wholly Savage: Ongoing Reforms at Home and Abroad Notes Works Cited Index
Victorian domestic novels routinely detect a savage otherness lurking within the English state and subject. Outlandish English Subjects in the Victorian Domestic Novel charts the development of this irony within evangelical and anthropological discourses and studies its emergence in the major works of Charles Dickens, Charlotte Brontë, Wilkie Collins, and George Meredith. Each of these writers disrupts the certitudes of imperial ideology by appropriating the language of ethnography and using it to describe the social domestic field. Providing fresh readings of both canonical and neglected novels, this original volume will be of interest to students and scholars of Nineteenth-Century literature and Postcolonial studies.
