These studies in Elizabethan and Jacobean travel literature, informed by a scholarly and sympathetic but, very properly, unsentimental approach to ten significant English travellers in India between 1579 and 1630, throw considerable light on the India of the great Mughals and reveal the many strands which are interwoven into the ties that have bound and still, in many ways, bind the great and ancient civilisations of the Indian sub-continent with the smaller and shorter civilisations of the British Isles. Professor Ram Chandra Prasad combines the skills and resources of the historian, the literary critic and the student of comparative literature and languages to demonstrate what we may learn of these two countries from the often idiosyncratic but always rich prose of Englishmen abroad in the ages of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I.Professor Prasad has chosen for study Thomas Stephens, Ralph Fitch, John Mildenhall, William Hawkins, Thomas Roe, Thomas Coryat, William Finch, Nicholas Withington, Edward Terry, and Henry Lord. He makes just enough reference to non-English travellers, such as Manucci, to keep his readers in the general picture of western "exploration", while at the same time he concentrates on his chosen field. The author`s practice of quoting long extracts in the original language has a twofold advantage: it makes his narrative more vivid, and it facilitates the determination of what one traveller owes to another.This new, completely revised edition of Early English Travellers in India will continue to fill a long-felt gap in Indo-Anglian literature and it will be greeted as an important achievement by the scholar and the general reader alike.
