“It is never too late to be wise.”
Based on true events of Alexander Selkirk, Daniel Defoe's *Robinson Crusoe* recounts the story of an Englishman who defying his father's wishes, runs off to sea to seek his fortune. Crusoe narrates how he was left stranded on a seemingly deserted island where he struggles to create a life for himself. Crusoe painstakingly teaches himself to fashion a pot, grow crops, domesticate livestock, and build a canoe.
Defoe’s realistic portrayal of characters, vividness of events and reflection of human relationships makes the novel one of its kind. Replete with absorbing details and daring heroics, *Robinson Crusoe* serves as a quintessential example of human valor, patience and hard work.
