Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in early modern globalization, travel and travel literature, whilst utopian literature has proved to be a continuing source of fascination for students of the intellectual and literary history of the early modern period. Drawing on this growth of interest, this volume brings together new work from an international range of scholars working on these fields of research and the interactions between them. New Worlds Reflected provides a significant contribution both to the history of utopianism and travel, and to the wider cultural and intellectual history of the time, assembling original essays from those interested in the representations of the globe and new and ideal worlds in the period from 1500 to 1800, and in the imaginative reciprocal responsiveness of utopian and travel writing.
