Jan 12 - Intro
Over weekend, read JPY to p. 100, "I come back to my three men."
Think of JPY as an 18th century disaster movie, with zombies. Defoe passed off the Journal as a first-person historical account (Based on true events!) rather than a fiction written 50 years after the events it narrates. Given that he has to stay close to events, for fear of the ruse being spotted, how does he do it? And how would this ruse go down with Oprah?
- Zimmerman, "H.F.'s Meditations," pp 285 - 295.
