Myths of modern individualism : Faust, Don Quixote, Don Juan, Robinson Crusoe by Ian Watt( Book )
23 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 1,085 libraries worldwide
In their original versions, the ultimate fates of Faust, Don Quixote, and Don Juan reflect the anti-individualism of their time: Faust and Don Juan are punished in hellfire, and Don Quixote is mocked. The three represent the positive drive of individualism, which brings down on itself repression by social disapproval. A century later, Defoe's Robinson Crusoe embodies a more favorable consideration of the individual, but only if one refuses to take seriously Defoe's statement that Crusoe's isolation is punishment for disobeying his father
