The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, best known as Robinson Crusoe, is an autobiographical adventure novel written by Daniel Defoe and published in 1719. The book is considered the first English novel. The novel is a fictionalized autobiography of the protagonist, an English castaway who spends 28 years on a remote desert island.

Robinson Crusoe is shipwrecked on a journey to Africa to procure slaves and lands on a remote island. There he has to survive however he can: build a home, domesticate animals or grow food.

After a tribe of cannibals attack his island to feast on the native population, Robinson saves one of the natives and names him Friday, becoming his servant...

Daniel Defoe affirmed in his publication that it was a true story, and for this reason he abandoned fantastic elements to create a totally realistic style.

The novel is a fairly accurate reflection of the British colonial attitude, as Robinson recreates his ancient civilization on the island without needing native knowledge or culture.
