During the era of Russia's modernisation and industrialisation which spans from the death of Nicholas I to the Revolution of 1917, Russian thinkers saw Britain as a rival and a society to emulate. The concern with Britain found its way to the pages of Russia's literary prose fiction in the form of English characters and images of England's society. The dissertation gives an analytical study of the English in Russian literature, examining how they become the textual other in the quest to identify Russia's national self between 1855 and 1917.
