Abstract

From its discovery in the fifteenth century, the New World has been animated by eschatology and utopianism. In The Quest for Paradise, Charles Sanford maintained that the history of society and culture in the New World "is best understood in the relation to the pursuit of paradise - that is, as an imaginative undertaking."
