What was the purpose of representing foreign lands for writers in the English Renaissance? This innovative and wide-ranging study argues that writers often used their works as vehicles to reflect on the state of contemporary English politics. It examines fictional and non-fictional writings, illustrating how early modern readers made close connections between the two, and the problems involved in assuming that we can make sense of the past with the categories available to us.
