Their pathbreaking models of national and literary history, their new way of reading national landscapes, and their debates about tradition and cultural transmission shaped a succession of new novelistic genres, from Gothic and sentimental fiction to the national tale and the historical novel.
In Ireland and Scotland, these genres were used to mount nationalist arguments for cultural specificity and against "internal colonization." Yet once exported throughout the nascent British empire, they also formed the basis of the first colonial fiction of Canada, Australia, and British India, used not only to attack imperialism but to justify the imperial project.
Literary forms intended to shore up national memory paradoxically become the means of buttressing imperial ideology and enforcing imperial amnesia.

] Thomas Nipperdey has similarly suggested that nationalism is set up as a promise of the re-integration of a community rooted in a ‘common culture’ and thus a product of nostalgia caused by the dissolution of tradition and the concomitant uncertainty and homelessness of the individual.
