About this product
- DescriptionJ. G. Farrell's 'Empire Triology' ('Troubles', 'The Siege of Krishnapur','The Singapore Grip')was one of the major achievements of postwar fiction and this new and accessible study excitingly explores its substance and significance and assesses its damning and influential critique of British colonial rule. Rather than position him at the end of a tradition of stalgic Empire writing McLeod shows how Farrell's vels satirize the perspectives of those who served the Empire and were caught up in its decline. McLeod also explores his early fiction, his unfinished posthumous vel and accounts for his changing critical legacy since his premature death in 1979, aged 44.
