Book Description

This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Robinson Crusoe" by Daniel Defoe. I walkd about on the shore, lifting up my hands, and my whole being, as I may say, wrapt up in the contemplation of my deliverance ...reflecting upon all my comrades that were drownd, and that there should not be one soul savd but my self... Who has not dreamed of life on an exotic isle, far away from civilization? Here is the novel which has inspired countless imitations by lesser writers, none of which equal the power and originality of Defoes famous book. Robinson Crusoe, set ashore on an island after a terrible storm at sea, is forced to make do with only a knife, some tobacco, and a pipe. He learns how to build a canoe, make bread, and endure endless solitude. That is, until, twenty-four years later, when he confronts another human being. First published in 1719, "Robinson Crusoe" has been praised by such writers as James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Samuel Johnson as one of the greatest novels in the English language. "The Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
