"McInnis provides an important new insight into how travel was regarded in the early modern period... Mind-Travelling and Voyage Drama in Early Modern England is a ground-breaking study that will appeal to students and academics alike." Frank Swannack, Parergon
Mind-Travelling and Voyage Drama in Early Modern Englandby D. McInnis
Drawing on a wide range of drama from across the seventeenth century, including works by Marlowe, Heywood, Jonson, Brome, Davenant, Dryden and Behn, this book situates voyage drama in its historical and intellectual context between the individual act of reading in early modern England and the communal act of modern sightseeing.
