Lord Selkirk

Lord selkirk can be said to hve been an "unrealistic idealistic". I need evidence to suppor or refute this claim. Does this phrase mean..Fake or didn't know what he was doing?

    You will need to interpret that phrase in the context of the whole work (story? book? play?) -- and read widely among these: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=n1j&rlz=1R1GGLL_en___US379&q=unrealistic+idealist&aq=f&aqi=g1g-sv1g-v7g-m1&aql=&oq=

    Let us know what you think.

    All I know about Lord Selkirk is from your questions and the replies to them. I think it is only fair to tell the teachers what part of Canadian/Native American history this is all about !

  • Lord Selkirk -

    Clearly Lord Selkirk had unrealistic ambitions for his settlement. Did he think it would all work out beautifully and did he initiate the settlement to increase his own private fortune or for the good of the colonists and perhaps the natives?

    For the benefit of other teachers who may be more qualified than I to reply to this, here is a link to a synopsis of what this is about:

    Thank you, Damon. Now we'll see if Emma can interpret that phrase in context.
