Robinson Crusoe
by Daniel Defoe and Paul Theroux and Robert Mayer




Overview -

Daniel Defoe's classic tale of a solitary castaway's survival and triumph, widely considered to be the first English novel.

"I, poor miserable Robinson Crusoe, being shipwrecked, came on shore on this dismal unfortunate island, all the rest of the ship's company being drowned. In despair of any relief, I saw nothing but death before me..."

Thus Crusoe begins his journal in Daniel Defoe's classic novel: the vividly realistic account of a solitary castaway's triumph over nature--and over the fears, self-doubt and loneliness that are parts of human nature.

For almost three centuries, Robinson Crusoe has remained one of the best known and most read tales in modern literature, a popularity owing as much to the enduring freshness and immediacy of its style as to its widely acknowledged status as the very first English novel.
