Details

Richard Hakluyt (1552-1616) was an English Protestant clergyman and Oxford scholar in the mid-sixteenth century. Never able to travel himself, he was enthusiastic about geography and explorations to the New World. Hakluyt took it upon himself to excite the public imagination by writing about the explorations of his contemporaries. With the publication of Voyages in Search of The North-West Passage, he played a crucial role in the search for the Northwest Passage by imagining a world that ranged well beyond the limited maps of the late sixteenth century.
