The Oxford Anthology of Raj Stories

Saros Cowasjee (Editor)
Synopsis A legacy of the British Raj in India is the literature produced about it. This comprehensive and wide-ranging anthology includes not just the work of masters such as Kipling and Orwell but of several lesser-known--but equally compelling--writers. The stories provide a vivid portrait of colonial India and impressions of the interaction between the British rulers and their Indian subjects in a mix of ironic, entertaining, and even eerie tales. They also reveal the British themselves, and their varied perceptions of the Raj, as the empire moves from a note of confidence to one of despair. As well as over thirty stories, the book also contains an introduction by the editor, biographical notes on the authors, and a glossary. It is bound to interest all those who read for pleasure, as well as historians and students of English literature.
