A Critical Analysis of John Demos' The Unredeemed Captive
An Unredeemed Captive: Chapter 5
The Unredeemed Captive was a brilliant attempt to pull together both an interesting story with many historical facts. I ultimately believe that Demo's main purpose in writing this piece was to write a story. This book, I believe is about finding your self identity and where you belong through different life experiences and situations. From John Williams being held captive, and going back to Puritanism when released to Eunice whom stayed with the Indians her whole life, the book shows many viewpoints from different individuals.
Haley Eppes Dr. John Demos wanted to write a story, and in this story the main focus is figuring out how to adapt to your surroundings and the circumstances that you have cannot control to best survive. With this he weaved a tale about a colonial town that was not prepared for what. How they made the journey is highly speculated as well.
