This book investigates the operations of memory over time through three case studies. Fuller calls upon many archived materials that many scholars have not yet accessed (ships logs, letters, etc) and presents her findings in an engaging, accessible style that brings these documents, narratives, and histories to life through her keen insights and contextualization.Fuller has a very good balance between primary sources, references to well-regarded scholars and theorists such as McDermott, Kelsey, Knapp, Greenblatt, Todorov, and Ricoeur, and her own arguments that are cutting edge and will contribute to this area of study.This book investigates the operations of memory over time through three case studies: the famous anthology by Richard Hakluyt memorializing the feats of Elizabethan voyagers, the eccentric autobiography of Captain John Smith, and the little known history of early modern Newfoundland.
