Abstract

Daniel E. White’s From Little London to Little Bengal seeks to unblock Anglophone literary studies by redirecting our fascination away from orientalism’s capacity to reproduce India as an abstraction and reflection of the British imagination. In his excellent book, he focuses on the circulation of objects, texts, and individuals between London and Calcutta (as well as Bristol and Serampore), producing new models for understanding how imperial exchange with India constituted (not just influenced) the Romantic imagination.
