  • Abstract: Taken with the vogue for Orientalism, three British poets turned anxiously, yet with fascination, towards Oriental material just as the idea of the Indian Empire was born : William Jones and his neo-classical odes inspired by the Enlightenment ; the Curse of Kehama, Robert Southey’s rather pretentious poem describing a conventional, Gothic India ; and Percy Shelley, for whom Indian subject matter resonates most profoundly in three texts featuring an anamorphous India.
