It is also a compelling and a powerful one. Nothing so original has ever been written on European responses to 'the wonder of the New World. I was intrigued throughout by the many flavors of his erudition, intelligence, and style.

Marvelous Possessions: The Wonder of the New World

Greenblatt's deft handling of intellectual baggage is a special gift, but his clear, quick, pungent re-creation of specific people and events in this context is remarkable. Nothing else in the entire literature of the quincentennial remotely approaches his vivid engagement with the crucial issue of cross-cultural perceptions.

    Marvelous Possessions : Stephen Greenblatt :

    Stephen Greenblatt. Marvelous Possessions is a study of the ways in which Europeans of the late Middle Ages and the early modern period represented non-European peoples and took possession of their lands, in particular the New World. In a series of innovative readings of travel narratives, judicial documents, and official reports, Stephen Greenblatt shows that the experience of the marvelous, central to both art and philosophy, was cunningly yoked by Columbus and others to the service of colonial appropriation.

    He argues that the traditional symbolic actions and legal rituals through which European sovereignty was asserted were strained to the breaking point by the unprecedented nature of the discovery of the New World.
