In Love and Hate m Jamestown


In Love and Hate m Jamestown: John Smith, Pocahontas, and the Heart of a New Nation, David A. Price
presented a more complicated and complex version of the legendary story of the founding of Virginia. His
narrative focused on class and the development of capitalism and brought together several important characters,
most notably Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas, and John Smith. In doing so, some say he challenged the traditional
View of the events in the early Jamestown colony. Based on your reading of the book: What role did John Smith
play in the development of the colony? What role did Pocahontas play? What was their relationship like? What
was the relationship between colonists and Indians like? What role did capitalism play in this story? How was this
version of history different than the traditional one, if at all? Was Price’s argument persuasive? Why or why not?
