Lines Drawn across the Globe

Reading Richard Hakluyt’s “Principal Navigations”

«

“Mary Fuller is one of the foremost scholars of early modern English travel writing, and Lines Drawn across the Globe is the result of a long career of nuanced assessment of writings on travel and encounter. Not just a textual study, this is also an investigation into early modern geography, European rivalries, and global expansion. It provides the most comprehensive guide to reading Hakluyt that is currently available.” Daniel Carey, University of Galway

Lines Drawn across the Globe is a magisterial work many years in the making, a personal reading of Richard Hakluyt's Principal Navigations of the English Nation by a scholar of literature that deploys real expertise, and an indispensable analytical guide to a text whose size and diversity can be daunting. While Hakluyt is often interpreted in the context of the history of early English colonialism in the Atlantic, emphasizing long-term historical consequences and the mythology of New World exceptionalism, Fuller offers a more nuanced exploration of the book’s rich and varied contents.” Joan-Pau Rubiés, Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies, Universitat Pompeu Fabra
