Summary
"The study treats the Victorian Antipodes as a compelling, fantastical, and utopian site of romance and subsequent satire for five middle-class writers who went to New Zealand between 1840 and 1872. Examining their dreams and experiences and the writing produced from their travels, chapters illuminate how contact with England's opposite and mirror produced literary studies of motion, distance, inversion, primitivism, and travels in time and space, foregrounding the empire's instrumental shaping of literary form, challenging realism with romance and gesturing towards science fiction and modernism. It affirms the distinctness of colonial settlements central to the rising specialism of settler colonialism, and highlights the intersection of late-Victorian ideas and post-colonial theories often kept separate in criticism"--
