Description:
Crusoe's Secret is a wide-ranging collection of essays on major authors and texts from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries.

More than a loose gathering, it offers a series of explorations and readings in the culture of English dissent, whether focused on 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 of Kipling or Hopkins - whose work was touched by dissent, often in secretly generative or transformative ways.

In its marriage of a historical vision to close critical readings, Crusoe's Secret locates Paulin himself in a line of exemplary readers, including William Empson and the late Edward Said, for whom biographical and historical awareness complement aesthetic enquiry, and in whose awakened rhythms can be heard the speaking voice of prose.
