Abstract

For the woman of Victorian fiction, the looming threat of the unknown East both excited and haunted the imagination. In this thesis, I focus primarily on how suttee, or Hindu widow burning, and the woman's body became the focal point through which the relationship between England and India is negotiated through readings of Flora Annie Steel's "On the Face of the Waters" and Philip Meadows Taylor's "Seeta."
