Marvelous Possessions: The Wonder of the New World

Գրքի շապիկի երեսը
University of Chicago Press, 1991 - 202 էջ
Marvelous Possessions examines the ways in which Europeans of the late Middle Ages and early modern period represented non-European peoples and took possession of their lands, in particular the New World. Greenblatt's innovative readings of travel narratives, judicial documents, and official reports reveal how the experience of the marvellous was yoked to the service of colonial appropriation.
