Summary
'Political Magic' examines British fictions of exploration and colonialism from 1650 to 1750, arguing that narratives of intercultural contact reimagine political categories such as sovereignty and popular power. By examining works by Margaret Cavendish, Daniel Defoe, Aphra Behn, Jonathan Swift, and Eliza Haywood in conjunction with political writing and travelogues, 'Political Magic' locates a subterranean discourse of sovereignty in the century after Hobbes, finding surprising affinities between the government of 'savages' and of Britons
