From the Publisher

Daniel Defoe’s 1719 novel presents the story of a man who spends years shipwrecked on a remote tropical island. There, he creates a home for himself in a cave, takes a parrot for a pet, hunts and grows his food, adopts Christianity, and encounters cannibalistic natives. Crusoe gains a companion when a prisoner of the cannibals escapes, and they manage to depart the island and have further adventures together. Crusoe is both the narrator and the credited author of the book, implying to many readers at the time of its publication that the story was, in fact, true. With its confessional style and realistic depiction of a man cast away from society, Robinson Crusoe is considered by many to have launched the movement towards realism in fiction.
