Colonial Writing and the New World, 1583-1671: Allegories of Desire
Colonial Writing in the New World 1583 1671 offers an account of the simultaneous emergence of colonialism and nationalism during the early modern period. It looks at the role that English interactions with native populations played in attempts to articulate a coherent English identity. Unlike most other studies of the subject, it suggests that colonialism is best understood as a phenomenon which had profound significance for people on both sides of the Atlantic.
