Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe

Defoe’s world-famous novel is a complex literary confection. It purports to be a history, written by Crusoe himself, and edited by Daniel Defoe who, in the preface, teasingly writes that he “believes the thing to be a just History of Fact; neither is there any Appearance of Fiction in it”. Robinson Crusoe has certain elements that make it irresistible. First of those is the narrative voice of the castaway. It s exciting, unhurried, conversational and capable of high and low sentiments. It s also often quasi-journalistic, which suits Defoe s style. This harmonious mix of tone puts the reader deep into the mind of the castaway and his predicament. His adventures become our adventures and we experience them inside out, viscerally, for ourselves. Readers often become especially entranced by Crusoe s great journal, the central passage of his enforced sequestration. [From The Guardian]
