Set in the days of the Empire, with the British ruling in Burma, "Burmese Days" describes both indigenous corruption and Imperial bigotry, when after all, natives were natives - interesting, no doubt, but finally only a "subject" people, an inferior people with black faces. Against the prevailing orthodoxy, Flory, a white timber merchant, befriends Dr. Veraswami, a black enthusiast for Empire. The doctor needs help. U Po Kyin, Sub-divisional Magistrate of Kyauktada, is plotting his downfall. The only thing that can save him is European patronage: membership of the hitherto all-white Club. While Flory prevaricates, beautiful Elizabeth Lackersteen arrives in Upper Burma from Paris. At last, after years of "solitary hell", romance and marriage appear to offer Flory an escape from the "lie" of the pukka sahib pose.
