Rereading the Imperial Romance is an important text for South African literary studies. Chrisman's nuanced reading of the interrelationship between history, politics and literary production provides fruitful scope for re-evaluating other marginalised writers and their interaction with colonialism. By shifting the centre of postcolonial studies onto Africa, Chrisman offers a valuable strategy for revisiting British Imperial literature. * Peter Midgley, H-SAfrica * The monograph is most remarkable in its scholarly attention to detail...This highlights the enormous strength of the study, which lies in its meticulous research and Chrisman's thorough effort to situate the texts within the debates and politics of their period. The footnotes, furthermore, offer a veritable wealth of information and references, making Rereading the Imperial Romance an excellent sourcebook on imperial studies in general. * Interventions, Vol. 4 * Chrisman's work draws on feminism, cultural materialism, and Marxism. She offers close studies of the works under discussion, a clear line of argument that is intelligently informed by the standard theories of imperialism and monopoly capitalism as well as more recent postcolonial and cultural theory, and an analysis of race and gender that never lacks a political dimension. * Victorian Studies *
