Daniel Defoeâs classic tale of a solitary castawayâs survival and triumph, widely considered to be the first English novel.
âI, poor miserable Robinson Crusoe, being shipwrecked, came on shore on this dismal unfortunate island, all the rest of the shipâs company being drowned. In despair of any relief, I saw nothing but death before meâ¦â
Thus Crusoe begins his journal in Daniel Defoeâs classic novel: the vividly realistic account of a solitary castawayâs triumph over natureâand 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.Â
