Product description


The author’s examination of the orientalist and colonialist ideologies underpinning British children’s literature from 1830-1930 is an important addition to the study of British culture. By examining a variety of texts such as pamphlets about the Great Exhibition, Alphabet picture books, animal imagery in Edward Lear’s narratives, and the adventure stories of Kipling, Frances Burnett, and G.A. Henty , this book offers a broad range of texts that demonstrate how young British children were prepared to be colonial masters. This is a valuable addition to scholarly studies of children’s literature and colonialism. -- Nalini Iyer, Seattle University

Shilpa Bhat Daithota's scholarly research reveals startling facts as she uncovers the underlying basics of indoctrination of the British children of the colonies. Written at the expense of the dignity of the natives, the allegories of the Empire with animal stories are brought back to us by Daithota and the resulting impact on the reader is impeccable. The reader is educated again. This time about the dark principles of the colonial primary education. -- Rucha Brahmbhatt, Samarpan Arts & Commerce College
