Seventy years after the formal end of the British Empire, how might we read the fiction it produced? Kipling's Kim (1901) and Conrad's Heart of Darkness (1899) offer sharply contrasting, seemingly incompatible views of empire in practice, yet both are reflected in Scott's The Jewel in the Crown (1966).
