This volume brings together three little-known plays that convey vividly the fascination in early seventeenth-century England with travel and exploration. In their different ways they are all dramas of wandering and adventure and they explore the great diversity of responses in the period to the lures of tourism and colonial expansion and to challenges posed by the encounter with exotic places and peoples.
