    Crusoe : Daniel Defoe, Robert Knox, and the creation of a myth by Katherine Frank( Book )
    15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,034 libraries worldwide
    "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

Ainsi, si Robinson a d'abord tenté de tuer Vendredi pour éviter d'avoir à partager son temps et son espace avec un sauvage, les explorateurs eux tentèrent d'éliminer les Indiens avant de leur concéder un espace en réserve sur le territoire, se croyant dans leur droit et considérant comme légitime leur marche vers l'Ouest et le progrès - les deux en venant à se confondre

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
