This chapter takes a look at national identity, food and family as depicted in Susan Ferrier's fiction, showing that her works are explicitly anti-Romantic and that she argues for colonialism as the basis for female liberation. It states that Ferrier's novels are about the decapitation and remaking of the family and the nation state, and that they also use food and domesticity in order to explore colonialism.

Keywords:   national identity, Susan Ferrier, anti-Romantic, colonialism, female liberation, decapitation, remaking of family, domesticity
