07/24/20 Online Salon Emyrs Jones

In this introduction to Daniel Defoe’s "A Journal of the Plague Year" (1722), Dr. Emrys Jones will seek to give a sense of the work’s underlying strangeness: the difficulty of categorizing it or of identifying exactly why it was written. Is it a novel? Dr. Jones presents this lecture for us live on Zoom from the U.K., hence the earlier start.

Registration is closed. This event has already been held.
