File size: 5.1 MB
In the first full-length study of The Isle of Pines (1668), supported by the first fully critical text, Scheckter discloses how Henry Neville’s work offers a critique of scientific discourse, enacts complicated engagements of race and gender and interrogates the methods and consequences of European exploration. The volume offers a new critical model for applying post-colonial and postmodern examination strategies to an early modern work.
