In the novel "Fantomina", we as readers discussed an underlying pro-feminism messages throughout the text.
Now in "Robinson Crusoe", there is a different message: religion. Robinson Crusoe puts the blame on God when something bad happens to him, but also says it was God's doing when something good happens to him.
Do you think that Daniel Defoe is spiritual and mirrored this character after his religious beliefs? In what lines are these comments the strongest? Or do you feel that when Robinson Crusoe gets lucky or comes across misfortune has nothing to do with religion? Do you feel there is a stronger message Defoe is trying to portray in his writing besides religion? If so, what is it andwhy do you feel this way?
