The story of Robinson Crusoe, a sailor and merchant, who lives as a castaway on a desert island for 28 years, is narrated in simple and contemporary language.
Crusoe leaves England in search of adventure and fortune, but during one of his voyages he is shipwrecked on an island where he finds himself alone. Slowly, day by day, thanks to his ability and intelligence, he re-builds a little “English” world with a house, tamed animals, fields...
Robinson remains by himself for many years, until one day, during his exploration of the island, he meets Friday: first his servant, then his friend, with whom he will spend his last years on the island.
Robinson Crusoe, written in the 18th century, and a best seller at the time, is still a beautiful classic for everyone.
