Rebecca Weaver-Hightower argues that by helping generations of readers to make sense of—and perhaps feel better about—imperial aggression, the castaway story in effect enabled the expansion and maintenance of European empire. Drawing on readings of works from Thomas More's Utopia and The Tempest to lesser-known works, Weaver-Hightower examines themes of cannibalism, monstrosity, and the concept of going native. _x000B_
