Focuses on the joining of fact (travel and discovery) and fiction (imaginary utopias) in the late 16th to early 17th century. Bringing a historical perspective to the "question of utopia", this text explores the literary works which flourished at this time about the unfamiliar Austral world.

From Library Journal:

Austral utopian fiction was popular from the late 16th to the early 17th centuries in Europe. This early literary tradition was the outgrowth of the secrecy surrounding early exploratory voyages to Australia and the nearby islands. Fausett, a New Zealand scholar and translator, attempts to correlate the factual evidence (geographies, atlases, and factual accounts) with evidence in the more plentiful fiction on the subject. One of his important contributions is the chronicling of these often bizarre Austral utopias, with synopses of the major works from the period and their influence on later literature such as Robinson Crusoe. Although Fausett treats a unique subject, the presupposed knowledge necessary to read it with comprehension will turn many readers away. For libraries that support graduate programs in European literature and/or utopian studies.
