Robinson Crusoe

Regular price Rs. 179.00

Fleeing from pirates, Robinson Crusoe is swept ashore in a storm, with only a knife, a box of tobacco, a pipe and the will to survive. Robinson Crusoe is the saga of a man alone: A man who overcomes self-pity and despair to reconstruct his life. In his journal he chronicles his daily battle to stay alive, as he conquers isolation, fashions shelter and clothes, first encounters another human being and fights off cannibals and mutineers. With Robinson Crusoe, Defoe wrote what is regarded as the first English novel and created one of the most popular and enduring myths in literature. But above all, it is a brilliant narrative, depicting Crusoe’s transformation from a terrified survivor to the self-sufficient master of his island.
