Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe is a novel by Daniel Defoe, first published on 25 April 1719. The first edition credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. Epistolary and didactic in form, the book is presented as an autobiography of the title character —a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical desert island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals and mutineers, before being rescued; the story has been thought to be based on the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on a Pacific island called "Más a Tierra", now part of Chile, renamed Robinson Crusoe Island in 1966. Despite its simple narrative style, Robinson Crusoe was well received in the literary world and is credited as marking the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre, it is seen as a contender for the first English novel. Before the end of 1719, the book had run through four editions, it has gone on to become one of the most published books in history, spawning so many imitations, not only in literature but in film and radio, that its name is used to define a genre, the Robinsonade.

Crusoe set sail from Kingston upon Hull on a sea voyage in August 1651, against the wishes of his parents, who wanted him to pursue a career in law. After a tumultuous journey where his ship is wrecked in a storm, his lust for the sea remains so strong that he sets out to sea again; this journey, ends in disaster, as the ship is taken over by Salé pirates and Crusoe is enslaved by a Moor. Two years he escapes in a boat with a boy named Xury; the ship is en route to Brazil. Crusoe sells Xury to the captain. With the captain's help, Crusoe procures a plantation. Years Crusoe joins an expedition to bring slaves from Africa, but he is shipwrecked in a storm about forty miles out to sea on an island near the mouth of the Orinoco river on 30 September 1659, he observes the latitude as 9 degrees and 22 minutes north. He sees seals on his island; as for his arrival there, only he and three animals, the captain's dog and two cats, survive the shipwreck. Overcoming his despair, he fetches arms and other supplies from the ship before it breaks apart and sinks.

He builds a fenced-in habitat near a cave. By making marks in a wooden cross, he creates a calendar. By using tools salvaged from the ship, some which he makes himself, he hunts, grows barley and rice, dries grapes to make raisins, learns to make pottery and raises goats, he adopts a small parrot. He reads the Bible and becomes religious, thanking God for his fate in which nothing is missing but human society. More years pass and Crusoe discovers native cannibals, who visit the island to kill and eat prisoners. At first he plans to kill them for committing an abomination but realizes he has no right to do so, as the cannibals do not knowingly commit a crime, he dreams of obtaining two servants by freeing some prisoners. Crusoe teaches him English and converts him to Christianity. After more natives arrive to partake in a cannibal feast and Friday kill most of the natives and save two prisoners. One is Friday's father and the other is a Spaniard, who informs Crusoe about other Spaniards shipwrecked on the mainland.

A plan is devised wherein the Spaniard would return to the mainland with Friday's father and bring back the others, build a ship, sail to a Spanish port. Before the Spaniards return, an English ship appears. Crusoe and the ship's captain strike a deal in which Crusoe helps the captain and the loyal sailors retake the ship and leave the worst mutineers on the island. Before embarking for England, Crusoe shows the mutineers how he survived on the island and states that there will be more men coming. Crusoe leaves the island 19 December 1686 and arrives in England on 11 June 1687, he learns. Crusoe departs for Lisbon to reclaim the profits of his estate in Brazil, which has granted him much wealth. In conclusion, he transports. Friday accompanies him and, en route, they endure one last adventure together as they fight off famished wolves while crossing the Pyrenees.
