No man is an island…he’s a peninsula.

From the Guardian comes this interesting article about the role of islands on classic and modern literature. Specifically cited are Treasure Island, Homer’s Odyssey, and Robinson Crusoe, to name a few.

I’m trying to think if Shakespeare ever wrote anything about islands.

🙂 Just kidding. The Tempest takes up a good two paragraphs in the center of the article.

P.S. The quote in the title comes from Jefferson Airplane.
