The Isle of Wight AnalogyAs memories of the great Empire fade further into history, the Isle of Wight has been relieved of most of its historical duties. Yet, traces of an older kind of Britishness still remain, having taken on a nostalgic quality. A native of Hong Kong, a former British colony, I have lived in UK for 11 years. The question of my own cultural identity led me to investigate the Island, a microcosm of an old Britain, one which is strange yet familiar to me in both cultural, historical and personal context. Through exploring the myths surrounding Britishness, I hope to find a sense of place in my adopted country as a response to my own displacement.
