Informationen zum Autor Kaori Nagai lectures in the School of English at the University of Kent. This is her first book. Klappentext "Who is Kim?" and "Why is he Irish?"--This book sheds light on this post-colonial riddle by placing it within a web of colonial analogies that existed to create the British Empire as a "reality." It characterizes "Empire" as a discursive battleground in which conflicting and changing models of British hegemony coexisted and were constantly contested. Zusammenfassung Starting from the analysis of the Irish characters in Kipling's Indian stories! this book shows that the representation of the British Empire was greatly indebted to analogies and comparisons made between colonies. It contrasts two different ways of making colonial analogies: 'imperialist' and 'nationalist'.
