Literature and Composition Module 2.1
Study Guide: Literature and Composition (Excellence in Literature, English 2)
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel DeFoe
Honors Texts for an Adventure Focus
The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss and/or
The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe by Daniel DeFoe
OR Honors Texts for a Spiritual Autobiography Focus
The Confessions by St. Augustine of Hippo (Ignatius Critical Edition) OR

[NOTE: No matter which focus you choose, the emphasis is on Robinson Crusoe as literature from an academic perspective. Most classic literature addresses religion in one way or another; Excellence in Literature deals only with the literary elements of this and does not promote a particular sectarian perspective.]
