Having been the only survivor of a shipwreck, the seafarer Robinson Crusoe is fated to live a solitary life on an uninhabited island. Unable to reconcile with his situation in the beginning, he gradually learns to live with it. He builds himself a house, learns to cultivate and develops necessary skills to live a precarious existence. He longs to see a human face, wishes to be rescued but his will be a long wait. Written in 1719, Robinson Crusoe is one of the first novels in English language and arguably the flagbearer of realistic fiction genre. It also enjoys the distinction of being the most reprinted novel in history. Although a simply adventure story, it continues to captivate its readers even three hundred years after its first publication.

About the Author

Daniel Defoe was many people in one man: a trader, a writer, a traveller, and a spy. He was born in London on September 13, 1660. He is most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe and is considered among the founders of the English novel along with Aphra Behn and Samuel Richardson. His other notable fictional works include The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe (1719), Memoirs of a Cavalier (1720), A Journal of the Plague Year (1722), and Moll Flanders (1722). Defoe also wrote various pamphlets, often giving a critical judgement on the current political scenarios. His An Essay upon Projects (1697) was published as a series which advocated social and economic improvements. He also satirised the English notion of racial purity in his poem "The True-Born Englishman" (1701). Defoe died at the age of 70 in London on April 24, 1731.
