I think that Daniel Defoe did a great job at this book
The first half of the book is a classic (the classic) shipwreck survival tale and very clear in its parallel of the castaway's physical survival alone to everyone's spiritual survival in the privacy of their relationship to mortality. A worthy companion to Milton or to Pilgrim's Progress, both of which it echoes in a lot of ways. I think that Daniel Defoe did a great job at this book. I did not find this the case at all!
My father was German, but he came to live and work in England. Soon after that, he married my mother, who was English. Her family name was Robinson, so, when I was born, they called me Robinson, after her.
My father was German, but he came to live and work in England. My father did well in his business and I went to a good school. He wanted me to get a good job and live a quiet, comfortable life.

Defoe probably based part of Robinson Crusoe on the real-life experiences of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish sailor who at his own request was put ashore on an uninhabited island in 1704 after a quarrel with his captain and stayed there until 1709.
Defoe probably based part of Robinson Crusoe on the real-life experiences of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish sailor who at his own request was put ashore on an uninhabited island in 1704 after a quarrel with his captain and stayed there until 1709. But Defoe took his novel far beyond Selkirk’s story by blending the traditions of Puritan spiritual autobiography with an insistent scrutiny of the nature of human beings as social creatures. He also deployed components of travel literature and adventure stories, both of which boosted the novel’s popularity.
