    "January 1719. A man sits at a table, writing. Nearly sixty, Daniel Defoe is troubled with gout and mired in political controversy and legal threats. But for the moment he is preoccupied by a younger man on a barren shore Robinson Crusoe. Several miles south, another old man, Robert Knox, sits bent over a heavy volume published nearly forty years before. Knox's 'Historical Relation' was a best seller when it was published in 1681, just a year after he escaped from Ceylon and returned to England. Where did Crusoe come from? And what is the secret of his endurance? Crusoe explores the intertwined lives of two real men, Daniel Defoe and Robert Knox, and the character and book that emerged from their peculiar conjunction. It is the biography of a book and its hero: the story of Defoe, the man who wrote Robinson Crusoe, and of Robert Knox, the man who was Crusoe."--Provided by Publisher

    Daniel Defoe (1659/1661-1731) was an English writer, journalist and spy, who gained enduring fame for his novel Robinson Crusoe (1719). Defoe is notable for being one of the earliest practitioners of the novel and helped popularise the genre in Britain. In some texts he is even referred to as one of the founders, if not the founder, of the English novel. A prolific and versatile writer, he wrote over five hundred books, pamphlets, and journals on various topics (including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology and the supernatural). He is also a pioneer of economic journalism. His most famous novel, Robinson Crusoe (1719), tells of a man's shipwreck on a desert island and his subsequent adventures. He also wrote Captain Singleton (1720), which portrays the redemptive power of one man's love for another; and Moll Flanders (1722), a picaresque first-person narration of the fall and eventual redemption of a lone woman in 17th century England
    Global Crusoe : comparative literature, postcolonial theory and transnational aesthetics by Ann Marie Fallon( Book )
    12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
    Global Crusoe travels across the twentieth-century globe to explore the huge variety of contemporary incarnations of Daniel Defoe's intrepid character. Reading texts by authors such as Nadine Gordimer, Bessie Head, Derek Walcott and J.M. Coetzee, Fallon argues that the twentieth-century Crusoe is not a lone, struggling survivor, but a cosmopolitan figure who serves as a warning against the dangers of individual isolation and colonial oppression

    Cet ouvrage établit un parallèle entre le mythe de Robinson Crusoe et les premiers explorateurs américains.
