9780571221165: Crusoe'S Secret

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.

About the Author:

Tom Paulin was born in Leeds in 1949 but grew up in Belfast, and was educated at the universities of Hull and Oxford. He has published eight collections of poetry as well as a Selected Poems 1972-1990, two major anthologies, two versions of Greek drama, and several critical works, including The Day-Star of Liberty: William Hazlitt's Radical Style and, most recently, Crusoe's Secret: The Aesthetics of Dissent. His most recent collection of poems is The Road to Inver (2004). Well known for his appearances on the BBC's Newsnight Review, he is also the G. M. Young Lecturer in English Literature at Hertford College, Oxford.

Review:

"'Paulin is a liberating critic, who can solve in a throw-away line the kind of problem students and bewildered young poets carry about with them... He is an urgent and passionate champion of the English dissenting tradition, which tradition was never more necessary, never more suppressed.' Kathleen Jamie, Independent on Sunday"
