Robinson Crusoe is a novel by Daniel Defoe in which Robinson Crusoe is marooned on an uninhabited island. He lives there for twenty-eight years, documenting his experiences in his journal.
Robinson Crusoe was Defoe’s first-published full narrative and his most popular, appealing to both middle-class and aristocratic readers with its combination of a believable and very human first-person narrator, realistic detail, allusions and references to actual places and people, imagery drawn from everyday life and the natural world, and an appealing, if somewhat unstructured, narrative line.

  • Crusoe, a sailor, survives a shipwreck and washes ashore on an uninhabited island. He documents his gardening, goat raising, hunting, and religious reflections.
  • Many years after the shipwreck, Crusoe rescues a prisoner from a group of cannibalistic island natives. Crusoe renames the man Friday, converts him to Christianity, and regards him as a servant.
  • Crusoe is rescued by a British ship and briefly returns to England. He then sets out on another adventure.
