The introduction makes a link between the mention of Russia and Lithuania in Eliot’s The Waste Land in order to introduce the theme of the study in terms of the geopolitics of the period from 1917, which was characterised by the dismantling or destabilising of the European empress and the beginning of a process of de-imperialisation. The focus of the study will be on the adjacent and intersecting discourses in Britain concerning the Russian Revolution, nationalities, and the formation of the League of Nations, with reference to the literature and journalism of the period.
