Western style for ‘dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient’ (1978:3). In constructing the Orient as a fantastical Other, Western writers both projected their own desires onto the Orient while at the same time asserting their moral superiority to the East. Therefore, though a fantasy, the Orient has important political repercussions in serving to justify the colonization of the “immoral East” by the “civilized West”. Similarly, by imagining itself to be the home of “Universal History” and progress to justify its power and myths, the West constituted the Other as the “non-thing” and blackness as ‘accomplished signs of a vegetative state’ (Mbembe 2017:11). Race is hence phantasmagoria since racism consists of substituting a real human face with a simulacrum, creating a fantasy of the racial Other as a menacing object which had to be controlled or destroyed (2017:10). These fantastical notions of race, in corresponding to an imagined state of degradation and defect of an ontological nature, allowed colonists to represent non-Europeans as trapped in a lesser form of being and thus Black bodies as exploitable objects (2017:17-18). Racial divides thus served a further practical purpose through the extraction of labour for colonial purposes. The creation of the racial Other also allowed for the naturalization of Whiteness (2017:43), legitimising processes of exclusion and inclusion through maintaining distinctions and hierarchies between differing groups in the colony. Through Fanon’s concept of the double-consciousness experienced in the attempts of a Black person to assimilate into White society, the desire of the racial Other to become like the Western self is illustrated. This illustrates how fantasies of Whiteness are normalized and universalized, serving to function as forms of desire and fascination for the colonial Other (2017:45). Therefore, imagination was required in the establishment of fundamental difference and the creation of a colonial Other needed to justify the work of empire. Moreover, empire is reproduced through the work of popular media and culture in imagining Western encounters with the East. Comparing Memoirs of a Geisha against other similar works, Allison works to interrogate how popular culture engages in and reproduces Orientalist discourse. In exploring how these works of fiction crafted around cultural difference both played up and luxuriated in exotic Otherness, Allison posits that these encounters with a foreign Other was driven by the need and desire to reassert one’s cultural identity as superior and secure (2012:298). This is particularly significant since both Memoirs and Madame Butterfly were written in the context of>GET ANSWER
