Myths of modern individualism : Faust, Don Quixote, Don Juan, Robinson Crusoe by Ian Watt( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four figures reveal the problems of individualism in the modern period: solitude, narcissism, and the claims of the self versus the claims of society. None of them marries or has lasting relations with women; rather, each has as his closest friend a male servant. Mephistopheles, Sancho Panza, Catalinon, and Friday are devoted till the end and happy in their subordinate role - the perfect personal servant. This suggests the self-centeredness of the four figures. Each pursues his own view of what he should be, raising strong questions about his character as a hero and also about the society whose ideals he reflects
