This book gives an account of the refashioning of ideas about national character in late Victorian culture, with a wide reference to literature and popular culture around the time of the Boer War, and a particular scrutiny of images of the soldier. In specific images, narratives and motifs, the book highlights dynamic tensions, between the external boundaries of empire and those of civil society, and between class antagonisms and national projections. Many new sources and materials are introduced to this field of study.
