Abstract/Summary

The first part of this essay examines how John Buchan (1875-1940) wrote imperial fiction, which he largely did before the First World War in the first part of his writing career. He did this in different texts and forms: the short stories ‘The Far Islands’ (1899), ‘The Kings of Orion’ (1906), ‘The Grove of Ashtaroth’ (1910a), ‘A Lucid Interval’ (1910b) and ‘The Green Wildebeest’ (1927); the novels The Half-Hearted (1900), A Lodge in the Wilderness (1906), Prester John (1910); in political analysis in The African Colony (1903); and in journalism, in ‘An Imperial Club for London’ (1903). The second part of the essay will analyse ‘A Lucid Interval’ , with pedagogical material on its publishing and metahistory.
