Question: Are we really post-colonial or just apologist colonial? 

It begs the question, who are the colonists of history and why?

See The Art of War by Lao Tzu. 

Read any history book ever written on the face of the planet. 

Question anyone who says we need to be more interdisciplinary.

“This book is to be neither an accusation nor a confession, and least of all an adventure, for death is not an adventure to those who stand face to face with it. It will try simply to tell of a generation of men who, even though they may have escaped its shells, were destroyed by the war.” [Preface]

  • Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway covered this issue in her Modernist novel

  • Consider how natural resources like tea became rationed and an essential staple for beleaguered men

Author: Oscar Wilde Speech


“I call it our English Renaissance because it is indeed a sort of

new birth of the spirit of man, like the great Italian Renaissance

of the fifteenth century, in its desire for a more gracious and

comely way of life, its passion for physical beauty, its exclusive

attention to form, its seeking for new subjects for poetry, new

forms of art, new intellectual and imaginative enjoyments: and I

call it our romantic movement because it is our most recent

expression of beauty.” – Oscar Wilde

Alice in Wonderland

If you want to talk about the tea table, look no further than Alice in Wonderland, the children’s novel published by Author Lewis Carroll in XXXX. Caroll was famously known for his friendship with a young Alice on whom he based his novel, and the tea table motif appears throughout the book. 

Alice In Wonderland has captured the popular imagination and has spawned numerous homages in various formats. Afternoon tea is invariably associated with the famous tea table scene involving Alice and the Mad Hatter.
