"A Writer of Empire? H. Rider Haggard, the Zulu, and British Imperialism" examines the major nonfiction publications of H. Rider Haggard as they relate to his time in Southern Africa in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This paper engages with arguments made about Haggard by prominent postcolonial critics and attempts to provide a more nuanced examination of his opinions regarding imperialism in Southern Africa and the native peoples colonized by the British government. In doing so, this paper prov·des an image of Haggard that runs contrary to that of the wider discourse.
