This book explores interconnections between voyage narratives and travel plays in a period of intense foreign relations and the incipient colonisation of the New World. Eminent Renaissance scholars use historical enquiry and textual analysis to offer new readings of narrative and dramatic texts, like The Spanish Tragedy, Dr Faustus, Eastward Ho or The Tempest, together with relati vely obscure works.They are envisaged both in the context of the period and from the the far-reaching perspective of Britain's cultural history.
