Abstract: How a bunch of career clerks sitting in Company headquarters in London, who never visited India, managed to create an empire in writing. “I had grown to my desk,” wrote a retiree in Romantic England as he turned 50, “and the wood had entered into my soul.” The author of Essays of Elia, and Tales from Shakespeare (written with his sister Mary), Charles Lamb was much more than someone whose wistful yet practical essays helped augment sales of London Magazine, or one befriended by the great wordsmiths of the age, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Hazlitt and William Wordsworth.
