It was a glorious postcolonial weekend. Not only did I liberate myself from my studies long enough to see The King’s Speech, but I stumbled across an old but unsold Dover Thrift Edition of the narratives of James Cook’s voyages at a failing Borders bookstore in Paramus, NJ.

The circa 1970s introduction to the paperback briefly discusses something I’ve never read before in my study of the Captain. Namely, how he worked to become a better writer. Perhaps he “discovered” process theory, too.

Captain James Cook becomes a better writer.

(Citation to come. I promise.)
