Rifled Sanctuaries

Rifled Sanctuaries [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Rifled Sanctuaries by Bill Pearson Book Summary:

The Pacific Islands began to appear in Western literature soon after European navigators made landfall there. From the first, there was seldom a statement of plain facts. Explorers brought their own viewpoints while editors, poets and novelists went on to interpret and moralise the first accounts. Portraying Pacific peoples as sensual, indolent, childlike and - frequently - wicked, such stories implied the duty of Europeans to rule and of the natives to be grateful. Modified though it sometimes was by the more accepting attitudes of beachcombers, by the exploitative activities of traders, and through the romantic eyes of erotic novelists, this conception of Pacific Islanders persisted through the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth.

The White Man's Burdens

Rifled Sanctuaries [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The White Man's Burdens by Chris Brooks,Peter Faulkner Book Summary:

In 1898, notoriously, Kipling urged the imperialist nations to 'Take up the White Man's Burden' the following year, in Satan Absolved, Wilfrid Scawen Blunt angrily replied, 'The White Man's Burden, Lord, is the burden of his cash'. Such ideological conflicts - and a whole range of intermediate positions - feature in much of the poetry British writers produced about the British Empire over the four centuries of its rise and fall. The discourses of postcolonialism have drawn attention to the major and continuing significance of the cultural products of the period of Western imperialism. But, so far, they have concentrated largely upon fiction and upon the writings and experiences of those parts of the world that were subject to colonialism and imperialist oppression. For the first time, The White Man's Burdens offers a cross-section of British poetry in which the Empire was the burden of the song. The material, much of it previously uncollected, is drawn from a broad cultural spectrum that includes narrative poetry, heroic verse, patriotic ballads, music hall monologues, and poems from Punch. A substantial Introduction sets the poems in the context of the economic, political, and ideological development of British imperial rule, and headnotes historicize the poems themselves, which are presented chronologically - from George Chapman's 'De Guiana: Carmen Epicum' of 1596 to Fred D'Aguiar's 'At the Grave of the Unknown African' of 1993. The result is a poetic summary of the changing attitudes of an imperialist nation to its own imperialism, attitudes which range from jingoism and racism, through religious idealism and liberal anxiety, to outright disgust at the whole enterprise.

Perceiving Other Worlds

Rifled Sanctuaries [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Perceiving Other Worlds by Edwin Thumboo,Thiru Kandiah Book Summary:

"The papers in this volume were delivered at the Symposium on Literature in Asia and the Pacific Region: Perceiving Other Worlds held in Singapore in November 1989. Writers, critics and scholars from Southeast Asia, South Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, North America and Britain addressed some of the major contemporary literary issues, including the ""Other and I"", the formation of identity in two or more cultures, the loss and recovery of tradition, the re-creation of meaning, and the re-writing of literary paradigms and history. A central impetus is the concern with the importance and fullness of ""I"" when it is ""the Other"". This is linked to challenges posed by the rich varieties of other worlds."
