Focusing on Ireland and the New World—the two central colonial projects of Elizabethan and Stuart England—this book explores the emergings of a colonialist consciousness in the writing and political workings of the English Renaissance. The literary production of the period engaged England’s settlement of colonies in the New World and its colonial designs in Ireland by offering multiple perspectives in constant collision and negotiation.
