The fascination with exotic cultures and the crossing of cultural boundaries provides some of the most striking ways in which a colonizing culture articulates its self-identity and asserts its authority. This book examines the representational dynamics of colonizer versus colonized in Henry Rider Haggard's and Rudyard Kipling's African and Indian writing, exploring the interface between the native "other" as reflection and as a point of address. The author employs recent thinking in psychoanalysis, anthropology and colonial discourse to analyze the manner in which fantasy and fabulation is caught up in networks of desire and power. She focuses on the early fictional and travel writing of Haggard and Kipling. Close friends as well as prominent figures of imperial and colonial myth-making, Haggard and Kipling were praised for their presumed knowledge of and alleged ability to speak from within the native cultures of Africa and India. Their fiction attests to a persistent fascination with the visual image of the other in the imaginative reconstruction of costume and body-image.
"White Skin/Black Masks" focuses on the fiction and travel writings
of Henry Rider Haggard and Rudyard Kipling. Close friends as well
as prominent figures of imperial and colonial myth-making, Haggard
and Kipling were praised for their alleged knowledge of and ability
to speak from within the "native" cultures of Africa and India.
Narrators and characters in their fiction attest to a persistent
fascination with the body-image of the "Other." Kipling's fiction
in particular deals with disguise and physical transformation
through the use of costume. This book addresses the psychic
processes of negation, projection and reappropriation in the
dynamics of pleasure/unpleasure and mastery/defense found in the
work of these two writers. It also seeks to provide a historical
context for understanding how these forces emerged from and were
played out in contemporary society.
