Annotation

Satire on travel literature and the discovery of places like Utopia and New Atlantis. Pretends to describe the place but the author lacks the knowledge to do so. Says the people prideful and vain. They pretend to be free but enslaved to their passions and to anyone who grabs power. Lots of writing without prior thought.
