Summary

Summary

Robinson Crusoe, published in 1719, was Defoe's first novel and survives as his best-known work. Loosely based on a true account of a Scottish sailor-Alexander Selkirk-it is a tale of one man's fall from grace and progress to redemption. The account of Crusoe's life, scratched out with rationed indigo ink on a dwindling supply of paper salvaged from the hull of a wrecked ship, speaks eloquently of the tenacity and ingenuity of the human spirit.
