Classics Revisited: Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
Prof. Michael Sugrue
Professor of History at Ave Maria University, BA in History from the University of Chicago, M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University
What may be mere adventures to a kid could be an enlightened view of the history of the world to an adult. Join Michael Sugrue, Ph.D. and bibliotheca as we enter the world of Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe and breakdown the meaning behind the adventures and the allegory within. Take a quick journey into this novel that means so much more than we may have ever imagined as kids. Listen to a fascinating lecture and participate in a live Q&A with the professor.
