Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Three hundred years later, does Robinson Crusoe hold up as a classic? A classic is a book that generations have found worth returning to and arguing with. Vividly written, replete with paradoxes and troubling cultural attitudes, revealing a deep strain of supernaturalism beneath its realist surface, Robinson Crusoe is just such a classic and far more than a simple adventure story for kids.” Washington Post
“The footprint scene in Crusoe [is] one of the four greatest in English literature and most unforgettable.” Robert Louis Stevenson, Scottish novelist and travel writer
