Product description

From its first publication in 1719, Robinson Crusoe has been printed in over 700 editions. It has inspired almost every conceivable kind of imitation and variation, and been the subject of plays, opera, cartoons, and computer games. The character of Crusoe has entered the consciousness of each succeeding generation as readers add their own interpretation to the adventures so thrillingly 'recorded' by Defoe. Praised by eminent figures such as Coleridge, Rousseau and Wordsworth, this perennially popular book was cited by Karl Marx in Das Kapital to illustrate economic theory. However it is readers of all ages over the last 280 years who have given Robinson Crusoe its abiding position as a classic tale of adventure.

Editorial reviews

Adapted, with a conscience, from Defoe under the supervision of Josette Frank, Children's Book Adviser of the Child Study Association of America. The old story still stands up as one of the best adventure yarns for children who are interested in tales of shipwreck. (Kirkus Reviews)
