About this product
- DescriptionThis book recovers places appearing in the mental mapping of medieval and Renaissance writers, from Chaucer to Aphra Behn. * A highly original work, which recovers the places that figure powerfully in premodern imagining. * Recreates places that appear in the works of Langland, Chaucer, Dante, Petrarch, Spenser, Shakespeare, Aphra Behn, and many others. * Begins with Calais -- peopled by the English from 1347 to 1558 and ends with Surinam -- traded for Manhattan by the English in 1667. * Other particular locations discussed include Flanders, Somerset, Gea, and the Fortunate Islands (Canary Islands). * Includes fascinating anecdotes, such as the story of an English merchant learning love songs in Calais. * Provides insights into major historical narratives, such as race and slavery in Renaissance Europe. * Crosses the traditional divide between the medieval and Renaissance periods.
