Robinson Crusoe is an evergreen tale of adventure about a young man who is shipwrecked on a tropical island, near Trinidad. During his 28 years away from civilisation, his courage, resourcefulness and ingenuity help him to survive and thrive till he is rescued.


The book is one of the first novels in English literature and it also introduced the literary genre of realistic fiction. It has inspired numerous other books, theatrical and movie adaptations. Read in today’s time, the book also symbolizes the European colonial enterprise and its associated ideas. However, its memorable characters make it still very readable today.


This edition is an abridged version for young readers and includes a timeline of the author’s life, which provides the literary, historical and cultural context of the book.
