She focuses on opium and opium paraphernalia because the drug serves as an apt metaphor for the interplay of remembrance and oblivion that characterises neo-Victorian appropriations of the past. She situates opium in a context of political economy and imperialism and continues to illustrate its continuing cultural relevance in different neo-Victorian appropriations of Victorian scripts related to opium: Amitav Ghosh’s novel Sea of Poppies (2008), the BBC’s documentary series Victorian Pharmacy (2010) and the ITV-adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Man with the Twisted Lip” (1890).</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-09-08T10:39:28Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/58564"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
