Crusoe's Secret PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Crusoe's Secret free pdf Comprised of pieces spanning five centuries, "Crusoe's Secret" explores the culture of English dissent, whether through canonical works - "Paradise Lost", "Robinson Crusoe", "Clarissa" - or moving between epic and novel, lyric, tract and drama. Tom Paulin engages with the great dissenting voices from Bunyan to D. H. Lawrence, and he casts new light on others - such as Clare or Kipling or Hopkins - whose work was touched by dissent. "Crusoe's Secret" confirms Tom Paulin's status as an exemplary reader, who brilliantly marries historical context and critical readings.
