Book brief summary
The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe
Robinson Crusoe - The hero of the novels of Daniel Defoe, the first two of which were published in 1719. The first book about Robinson gave rise to the classic English novel and spawned the fashion for pseudo-documentary prose; it is often called the first "authentic" novel in English. This literary character has a real prototype - Alexander Selkirk, the boatswain of the ship "Cinque Ports" ("Senk Por"), distinguished by an extremely quarrelsome and quarrelsome character. Selkirk was landed in 1704, at his request, on an uninhabited island, supplied with weapons, food, seeds and tools. Selkirk lived on this island until 1709. The full title of the first book sounds like “Life, extraordinary and amazing adventures of Robinson Crusoe, a sailor from York, who lived 28 years alone in a desert island off the coast of America near the mouths of the Orinoco River, where he was thrown by a shipwreck, during which the entire crew of the ship except he died, setting out his unexpected release by pirates; written by him. " In August 1719, Defoe released the sequel "Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe", and a year later - "Robinson Crusoe's Serious Thoughts", but only the first book was included in the treasury of world literature, and the new genre concept "Robinsonade" is connected with it
