Through readings of a variety of both canonical and lesser known travel dramas, this book shows how gender behaviour, sexual appetite, piracy, 'turning turk', and other forms of anti-establishment activity in colonial and remote locations should also be understood as political allegories about life in Britain. In this book travel dramas are read as carefully coded evaluations of the foreign and domestic policies of Tudor and Stuart monarchs just as much as expressions of the strength of national colonial ambitions.
This book offers a new understanding of the way gender and gender behaviour shaped geographic drama in the Renaissance. It offers a fresh account of how travel and domestic politics could be linked by writers of the time. Readers interested in travel and exploration, Renaissance history and culture, American studies, the history of colonialism, and gender and women's studies will find much of interest in this book.
