In his pathbreaking argument that the "Orient" was "a European invention" crucial to the West's self-construction, Edward Said builds on earlier work such as Raymond Schwab's encyclopedic history of Orientalism byinsisting on the "formidable structure of cultural domination" that the orientalist text elaborates or enacts. The "fact of empire" gives nearly all nineteenth century writing a political charge, but British Romanticism specifically can be seen to emerge out of or in relation to the period of England's intensive imperial expansion, including the operations of the East India Company from the acquisition of territory in the Battle of Plassey in 1757 to the Great Revolt in India in 1857 as a resu

Identity is inescapable and in constant flux. It can be located in the body, in the discourse that surrounds and determines bodies, or in the more nebulous realm of language.
