21 Although much of Owenson’s novel is overwritten, and her harpplucking princess is a foretaste of today’s Celtic kitsch, her historical consciousness enables her to penetrate dimensions of the Anglo-Irish encounter to which the more intellectually sophisticated Edgeworth had no access. This is because Owenson (in contrast to Edgeworth) is willing to acknowledge the unpleasant truth that conquest is the central fact of Anglo-Irish history. Mortimer (and later, it transpires, his father, as well) has been drawn to Ireland out of a recognition of English injustice and a personal desire to make amends for his own ancestors’ brutality.
A. Freeman, J. R. Green, and William Stubbs. All three were guardedly inﬂuenced by the new evolutionism, although they each maintained a studied ambiguity as to whether it was the Anglo-Saxon race or the English Constitution that was the fast-evolving entity. Freeman generally opted for the ﬁrst, and Green and Stubbs for the second of these alternatives. At the end of the chapter I touch on the work of an Indian scholarimperialist, R. C. Dutt, who reacted to the anglocentric evolutionism of Maine et al.

In the University of Calcutta and in minor government ofﬁces, a rising generation of middle-class intellectuals was creating its own variant of the liberal imperial romance, at the very moment when its metropolitan counterpart was giving its up. The ﬁrst task for the Indians was to devise their own versions of the progress narrative – to escape from the status of racialized objects, in which they were being placed by metropolitan evolutionary science, and to re-position themselves as consequential actors in history-worthy events.
