Format: Paperback
I would not have considered this book but for its inclusion on my reading list for university, and had this been so I would have missed a rewarding text. Boehmer collates a diverse range of material here, in the form of poems, extracts and short pieces of fiction, travel writing, history and even textbook pieces. they offer a slice of the time, displaying the unbelievably arrogant at racist attitudes of the time without being critical. all aspects of the period are included - every imperial nation; domestic, military, religious areas of life and so on. this gives an unparalleled feel for the time. boehmer's editing is comprehensive - notes are excellent, references complete, and there are even biographies of the authors included. there are some dud pieces in my opinion, but in such an sll-encompassing anthology, this is inevitable. all in all, an enjoyable work, competently executed and varied enough to keep the interest.
