  • Robinson Crusoe Nouv.

    "Robinson Crusoe" is Daniel Defoe's best and most popular novel. It is structured like an autobiography of the main character, depicting his castaway adventures on a lonely island for 28 years. Defoe's novel abounds in detailed natural descriptions, moments of calm before the stormy action, and powerful character development. It is the story of quite an ordinary man who struggles to survive in extraordinary circumstances through the help of God, his will to live, and the power of friendship. The action part is recommendable - cannibals, more castaways, and a recaptured English ship. Perhaps the first English novel, "Robinson Crusoe" is a text that should be approached by readers of all ages and walks of life.
