Seminar paper from the yr 2010 within the topic English - utilized Geography, grade: 2,3, college of Koblenz-Landau (Anglistik), language: English, summary: England grew to become robust, while Elizabeth I got here to the throne in 1558. in the course of her time period England grew to become probably the most strong empires on the planet. the 1st colonies have been based and the English troops conquered the Spanish Armada. a guy referred to as Francis Drake used to be the 1st English individual, who circumnavigated the realm. From “Small” to “Big” that was once continually the motto he lived and eventually turned well-known with. His motto describes his lifestyles, a existence which all started in modest dwelling stipulations and eventually reached the top social sessions (Damm 25).
The Spanish feared and favourite Francis Drake whilst. This was once because of his nice braveness and his unpredictability. They known as him “El Dragon - The Dragon”. He used to be hated via many Spaniards, however the King of Spain (Philip I.) hated him the main. He even introduced to pay 20.000 ducats, on Drake’s head (Wood 73). This was once a good honour for Sir Francis Drake. What used to be it, that made him so risky for the Spanish King, and the way did the Queen of britain liked his doing? during which connection did he stand to Elizabeth I.? Who was once this guy and what impact did he have within the British Empire and at the British throne?
In this paintings i'm going to try and locate solutions to most of these questions, but additionally discover extra approximately his incidence and behavior, while he landed on unsettled land. i'll try and evaluate his prevalence and behavior, to the “Ethnocentric” behaviour. although the coinage of the time period “Ethnocentrism” itself was once first brought in 1906, “ethnocentric” behaviour can definitely be discovered centuries earlier than that. while the eu settlers started to colonize the “new world”, the land was once easily taken from the local inhabitants. For the Europeans the Natives have been outsiders without rights. typically the explorers confirmed standard ethnocentric behaviour.
How Sir Francis Drake taken care of the local inhabitants is without doubt one of the focuses of this paper. Did he convey a similar ethnocentric behaviour like lots of the others did or used to be he pleasant and great to the local inhabitants?
How did he get involved with them to speak?
I will supply a better clarification to the time period “Ethnocentrism” and need it stands for, ahead of I examine the best way Drake taken care of to local humans, while he landed within the “New global” (America). Her for i'll examine the narratives by way of Hakluyt approximately Sir Francis Drake’s touchdown within the new global, which used to be someplace within the neighborhood of what's now San Francisco (The Norton Anthology of English Literature 894 ff).
