After a dramatic shipwreck, Robinson Crusoe is a castaway on a tropical island for 28 years. Defoe's classic tale features a series of events involving mutineers and prisoners, while Crusoe wrestles with his own solitude. Probably the first true novel in the English language.

Daniel Defoe (1660–1731) was a trader, pamphleteer, free-thinker and novelist at the birth of the novel as a form of literature. Robinson Crusoe (1719) and Moll Flanders (1722) are amongst his many achievements and over 300 publications.
