Situated within seminal debates on the questions of liberation and justice viewed from the postcolonial context, this dissertation evaluates freedom narratives from both sides of the colonial divide during the period of high imperialism.

Gandhi, and James Joyce, I argue for similarities in these writers’ narrative construction of “freedom” against colonial modernity.
