Summary: The narratives of the voyages of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean era have delighted readers over the centuries as stirring accounts of the daring of empire-builders. In the belief that in our post-imperial era these writings can be seen as a powerful and special kind of literature, having kinship with the great fictional tragedies of the period, Philip Edwards here collects the contemporary accounts of three famou...s "last voyages". Written by the participants themselves--leaders, mutineers, young gentlemen, and a poet and mathematician--the narratives recount moving stories of endeavor and defeat in the face of difficult seas and hostile terrain. There is Thomas Cavendish's fatal attempt in 1591-92 to repeat his earlier triumphant circumnavigation; Henry Hudson's last attempt to find the North-West Passage in 1610-11, in which he was ultimately set adrift on the ice by his own crew; and Sir Walter Raliegh's failed attempt to find gold in Guiana in 1617-18, before returning to England and execution. All the narratives are given in modern spelling and have been newly re-edited from the original manuscripts or printings. Edwards's introductions correct a number of historical inaccuracies, and he includes a full explanatory commentary.
