Synopsis

Colonial Transformations The Cultural Production of the New Atlantic World,1580-1640 by R. Bach

Colonial Transformations covers early modern English poetry and plays, Gaelic poetry, and a wide range of English colonial propaganda. In the book, Bach contends that England's colonial ambitions surface in all of its literary texts. Those texts played multiple roles in England's colonial expansions and emerging imperialism. Those roles included publicizing colonial efforts, defining some people as white and some as barbarians, constituting enduring stereotypes of native people, and resisting official versions of colonial encounters.

Reviews

'Rebecca Ann Bach's book, with its readings of such unlikely 'colonial'

's Amoretti and Jonson's Bartholomew Fair, is an impressively successful example of the approach Colley describes...The great strength of this book lies in Bach's willingness to enter generic and linguistic territories from which like-minded critics have tended to shy away.' - Philip Schwyzer, MLR'
