The great Daniel Defoe forms a most extraordinary picture of a sea-sick, Robinson Crusoe,his life and adventures. Crusoe(Kreutznaer) without paying heed to his father's counsel went to the sea for the fulfillment of his dreams. The principal part of the novel arrives when Crusoe along with his slaves was ship-wrecked and coming to know that he was the sole surviver of the ship. And hereby, follows the adventurous life of Robinson Crusoe.He starts to flourish his latent talents there. He builds a shelter for himself,learns cropping and slowly adjusts with the lonely environment.After many long years of struggle and hardships he finds some companions, with whom later he finds the way to escape from the lonely island.On reaching his nation after an era he gets married with an English woman, and starts leading a happy part of his miserable life.

About the author (1990)

Daniel Defoe was born Daniel Foe in London, England on September 13, 1660. He changed his surname in 1703, adding the more genteel "De" before his own name to suggest a higher social standing. He was a novelist, journalist, and political agent. His writings covered a wide range of topics. His novels include Robinson Crusoe, Moll Flanders, Roxana, Captain Singleton, and Colonel Jack. He wrote A Tour Thro' the Whole Island of Great Britain, which is an important source of English economic life, and ghost stories including A True Relation of the Apparition of One Mrs. Veal. He also wrote satirical poems and pamphlets and edited a newspaper. He was imprisoned and pilloried for his controversial work, The Shortest Way with the Dissenters, which suggested that all non-Conformist ministers be hanged. He died on April 24, 1731.
