A landmark work from the author of Orientalism that explores the long-overlooked connections between the Western imperial endeavor and the culture that both reflected and reinforced it. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as the Western powers built empires that stretched from Australia to the West Indies, Western artists created masterpieces ranging from Mansfield Park to Heart of Darkness and Aida. Yet most cultural critics continue to see these phenomena as separate. Edward Said looks at these works alongside those of such writers as W. B. Yeats, Chinua Achebe, and Salman Rushdie to show how subject peoples produced their own vigorous cultures of opposition and resistance. Vast in scope and stunning in its erudition, Culture and Imperialism reopens the dialogue between literature and the life of its time.… (mere)

Subordinating culture is the fruit of imperialist tree. ( )
  Kavinay | Jan 2, 2024 |
The book will change the way you read the old classics - if you are Asian or have been colonized. When I read, for instance, "Heart of Darkness," I did not think of it as a book with imperialist overtones. However, authors are products of their times. Edward Said has done many of us a favour by writing this excellent book, which provides us with a different view of the old books.
He has included the recent imperialistic attitude of the American which, for instance, resulted in the Iraq War.
The book is excellent. Read it with care. Read it after you finish "Orientalism." Both books demand patience. ( )

Analisa o discurso colonialista subjacente a autores centrais da literatura europeia, como Joseph Conrad, Jane Austen, Giuseppe Verdi, Camus, Yeats, ( )

Said didn't break me but came very close. More than anything, I appreciated his continual return to the context and geography of colonialism and the way that this makes works of pro-colonialist texts, such as Camus, more interesting as sites of inquiry. Rejecting a dismissal Said calls on a contrapuntal reading that engages critically with texts that have been wrest from their context and universalized. The problems if the modern academy in chapter 4 left me feeling defeated as it still seems as if most critical studies have been neutered in their political efficacy.

...[W]hat accounts for Orientalism' s insurgent existence is its relentless transgression of boundaries drawn by disciplines of knowledge and imperial governance. Unsettling received oppositions between the Orient and the Occident, reading literary texts as historical and theoretical events....

The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much. What redeems it is the idea only. An idea at the back of it; not a sentimental pretence but an idea; an unselfish belief in the idea - something you can set up, and bow down before, and offer a sacrifice to... - Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
