Sound And SyntaxBook - 1992
As a result of its imperial role, Britain was closely involved with such romantic and disruptive myths of power such as the imperial adventure hero and the self-deified charismatic leader. Lee Horsley explores fictional representations of political power during this period, surveying a wide range of texts from the adventure story, romance, thriller and science fiction to the novels of Conrad, Huxley, Orwell and Greene.
