Abstract:

"When William Shakespeare wrote The Tempest, some scholars argue that it was inspired by the adventures and misadventures of Bartholomew Gosnold's first voyage. Gosnold, a relative of Sir Francis Bacon, and educated at Cambridge, decided at an early age to seek out the new world of North America and establish English colonies. His ship was called Godspeed. It is argued by some specialists that Gosnold was one of the most important and influential figures in the history of 17th century English explorers and colonizers. His founding of Jamestown, Virginia was the first successful permanent English colony on North American soil. But the choice proved to be a very unhealthy one and one fraught with illness. Gosnold died there. His skeleton was only recently discovered near the fort of old Jamestown. John B. Lee's narrative tale brings alive this historical figure, painting a rich and true image of him and his struggles. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
