Robinson Crusoe—A Lone Survivor

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature

Robinson Crusoe—A Lone Survivor

Taught by Professor Thomas A. Shippey | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Robinson Crusoe might be the most flawed hero in the course—a colonizer and a slave-owning capitalist. Why, then, is he such an enduring character? Is it the desert-island story? Or is there something inherent in Crusoe’s character, beyond the flaws, that has helped him stand the test of time?
