About this book

This book investigates the operations of memory over time through three case studies: the famous anthology by Richard Hakluyt memorializing the feats of Elizabethan voyagers, the eccentric autobiography of Captain John Smith, and the little known history of early modern Newfoundland.

Reviews

"Carefully steering its readers through New World waters, Remembering the Early Modern Voyage advances measurably our understandings of the intimate relations between boats and books, navigation, and publication. Two of Fuller s three case studies persuasively demonstrate both how crucial Hakluyt s Principal Navigations was to the establishment of English imperial history and the enshrining of some of its explorers as heroes, and how comparatively ineffective and thus unremembered were the expeditions and publications that, for one reason or another, found no place in his vast anthology. Her third case study, by foregrounding other forms of remembering than narrative publications, not only retrieves a forgotten history of whole English communities in the New World, but also throws into relief the ideological dimensions exerted by publications on historical renderings of the early modern New World." - I.S. MacLaren, Departments of History and Classics, and English and Film Studies, University of Alberta
