Colonial Transformations covers early modern English poetry and plays, Gaelic poetry, and a wide range of English colonial propaganda. In the book, Bach contends that England's colonial ambitions surface in all of its literary texts. Those texts played multiple roles in England's colonial expansions and emerging imperialism. Those roles included publicizing colonial efforts, defining some people as white and some as barbarians, constituting enduring stereotypes of native people, and resisting official versions of colonial encounters.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Rebecca Ann Bach's book, with its readings of such unlikely 'colonial' texts as Spenser's Amoretti and Jonson's Bartholomew Fair, is an impressively successful example of the approach Colley describes...The great strength of this book lies in Bach's willingness to enter generic and linguistic territories from which like-minded critics have tended to shy away.' - Philip Schwyzer, MLR
