The Mutiny Novel 1857-2007: Literary Responses to the Indian Sepoy Rebellion

Flaminia Nicora (Author)
Synopsis This study examines the modalities of narrative representation of the Mutiny in the historical novel. The narrative on the rebellion has drawn on the British collective imaginary and has offered a representation of the process of identity construction during the Victorian age, which refers to the hegemonic vision with which the cultural and political establishment has supported, in symbolic terms, the process of expansion and the consolidation of colonialism. The interest for genre variations and for the iconic value of the event led to an extension of the analysis of the Mutiny novels from the origins to the present day, in order to observe its deconstructions (not devoid of ambiguity) operated by decolonization. The study is innovative and makes a rich contribution to the corpus of Anglo-Indian novel.
