    Normally I don t judge a book based on the actions the people commit in them Normally, I just consider the work a piece of history and dethatch myself from anything that occurs inside But sometimes, every so often, a book comes along in which the contents are just that atrocious that I can t remain impartial and approach the book academically Simply put, Sir Francis Drake was a cunt Now I don t use that word liberally it s not something I fling around it s something I save for human beings who a [...]

    Richard Hakluyt s The Voyage of Sir Francis Drake Around the Whole Globe collects the two accounts, snappily titled The famous voyage of Sir Francis Drake into the South Sea, and there hence about the whole globe of the earth, begun in the year of our Lord 1577 and The prosperous voyage of the worshipful Thomas Candish of Trimley in the County of Suffolk Esquire, into the South Sea, and from thence round about the circumference of the whole earth, begun in the year of our Lord 1586, and finished [...]

    An interesting little book, aimed at the historian than the casual reader The text tells of where ships were sunk making it a handy treasure guide in the past.A typical long winded and dry travelogue but not bad, it makes you wonder how we survived as a species when all we done was kill each other, or theirself all the time

    I read this as part fo the Dewey s 24 hr readathon and I have to say this was a really exceptionally shocking little book I had no idea quite how pirate like and bloodthirsty Francis and his crew were but the whole way through this all they seem to do is kill animals in the thousands despite there only being just over 150 men , pillage, burn, destroy and kill people particularly the Spanish In this little book we have two excerpts from two voyages, the first is that of Drake, the second that of [...]

    Short quick historical fact book, written without emotion or scene setting, great little book for interested related readers

    Fascinating I no longer understand the difference between explorers and pirates these Englishmen weren t just mapping the world they were killing, burning and looting almost everywhere they went The writing was very simplistic and matter of fact, even when describing something as disturbing as an execution There were some very detailed descriptions of things that they had never come across before, like coconuts And they referred to seals as sea wolves.

    Exceedingly boring I thought perhaps it would give an insight to what Drake was like as a man and leader, but it barely even mentions him I m assuming our general is Drake Who knows, really I don t even know who the second bloke is and can t bring myself to care It offers nothing, except a slight historical note on where these voyagers went Still not as bad as those haikus, though.Blog Instagram Twitter Pinterest Shop Etsy

    I think what surprised me than anything in this short excerpt from Richard Hakluyt s Voyages and Discoveries, is how much Drake and his entourage were bloodthirsty pirates In the first three pages they have forcibly taken, robbed eight boats These occupants mostly fishermen in this case yielded, and as there is no mention of their slaughter, so we will give Drake the benefit of the doubt and consider they were left alive.Others were much less lucky, and were slaughtered, their ships, boats or v [...]

    At first it seems quite an objective account of English voyages, how he describes the burning and looting done by the Englishmen on the two ships But what cracks me up is how the writer uses stronger words to describe similar acts done by the Spanish, as though looting and burning done by Englishmen was in a way sophisticated than the one done by SapniardsAll in all a great read

    Short but sweet Perfect to inspire ones imagination to roam free.A bus ride well spent.

    If you ever asked yourself what the interior workings of the imperialist mindset are, look no further The mind boggling lack of self reflection combined with tremendous amounts of entitlement make for a hauntingly informative, though hardly enjoyable read The general permitted them to enter within our bulwark, where they continued their song and dance a reasonable time They made signs to our general to sit down, to whom the king, and divers others made supplications, that he would take their pro [...]

    I am fond of travel accounts, but this one just didn t do it for me The last ten pages were a struggle to finish.

    Hakluyt writes in an almost nonchalant manner about his voyages around the New World, which appear to have mostly consisted of killing every Spaniard they came across, looting and pillaging Gold and other goods from everyone they met, burning ships at every opportunity, and getting into scrapes with natives even after joining them for dinner and a dance Entertaining and shocking stuff, but I felt that there was a lack of any real sense of what life was like for him and his comrades spending mont [...]

    Read this for the history And to gain an understanding of the colonial attitude But if you find it too long here is a summary of how to travel the world 1500 s style 1 If it is spanish steal it or, failing that, burn it.2 If it is Spanish but the Spaniards aren t there fool the natives into thinking you are Spanish and steal all the Spanish stuff then tell the natives who you are If the natives are friendly pay them if not, burn them out.3 If it is an animal kill it, even if you don t need the f [...]

    These Little Blacks are always misleading About 20 pages of this was actually Hakluyt writing about Francis Drake the other two thirds was Francis Pretty about another voyage around the world Title, thus, misleading Content was alright Sort of standard fare we went to land and saw the natives and they worshipped us as gods and then we set their houses on fire and also all Spanish settlements and we are also pirates that you get with 16th century travel writing But quite entertaining nonetheless. [...]

    Definitely an interesting read, and fairly quick to get through, though only about half of the book is focused on Francis Drake s travels And, of course, considering the time period, a lot of what is said on the people they come across is pretty dated and backwards

    Liz Janet
    Dry writing, the murder of innocent natives, a desire for whatever fruit they had never seen before and generalizations used to be the writing style of the time.
