Robinson Crusoe

This title presents the basic facts and the background information needed by a modern reader of Robinson Crusoe, as well as a careful exploration of the structure and style of the work itself.

Author(s): Pat Rogers
Series: Unwin Critical Library
Publisher: Unwin Hyman, Year: 1979

The Cambridge Companion to ‘Robinson Crusoe’

“This Companion begins by studying the eighteenth-century literary, historical and
cultural contexts of Defoe’s novel, exploring the reasons for its immense popularity in Britain and in its colonies in America and in the wider European world. Chapters from leading scholars discuss the social, economic and political dimensions of Crusoe’s island story before examining the ‘after life’ of Robinson Crusoe, from the book’s multitudinous translations to its cultural migrations and transformations into other media such as film and television. By considering Defoe’s seminal work from a variety of critical perspectives, this book provides a full understanding of the perennial fascination with, and the enduring legacy of, both the book and its iconic hero.”
