Romantic Literature and Colonialism

I couldn't imagine devoting any more time to Keats and Wordsworth and Shelley and Byron. So I turned to Brown Romantics where I looked at how Romantic ideas, philosophies, politics, and techniques were mobilized ends towards nationalist ends by 19th century writers in India, Australia and British Guyana.

MANU SAMRITI CHANDER

Literary scholar Manu Samriti Chander on how both his preoccupation and alienation from the Romantics made him turn towards 19th and 20th-century colonial and postcolonial writers: subaltern writers who formed a corpus of "Brown Romantics," and provided insight into indigeneity, kinship, and creole spaces.
