“It is never too late to be wise.”
Based on true events of Alexander Selkirk, Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe recounts the story of an Englishman who defying his father's wishes, runs off to sea to seek his fortune. Crusoe narrates how he was left stranded on a seemingly deserted island where he struggles to create a life for himself. Crusoe painstakingly teaches himself to fashion a pot, grow crops, domesticate livestock, and build a canoe.
Defoe’s realistic portrayal of characters, vividness of events and reflection of human relationships makes the novel one of its kind. Replete with absorbing details and daring heroics, Robinson Crusoe serves as a quintessential example of human valor, patience and hard work.
