      Robinson Crusoe is surely a modern epic, however unlike Homer or Beowulf or Gilgamesh, it is a fictional memoir, a style choice that increases its ‘believability’ or verisimilitude. The modern problem is characterized by its lack of faith in authorship, or authority, thus literature becomes more epistolary, historical, documentary, and above all it strives to achieve ‘realism.’. A summary of Chapters VIII–XII in Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. Learn exactly what happened in this chapter, scene, or section of Robinson Crusoe and what it means. Perfect for acing essays, tests, and quizzes, as well as for writing lesson plans.

Rediscover Crusoe’s Island and the strange, surprising story of Yorkshire’s world-famous castaway. Mark has been a professional actor for over 20 years and has been a stalwart of North Country Theatre for much of his date: He really did go to the island and were the sole inhabitants for two years.

Morton’s book Crusoes of Sunday Island – which Lydia read for her own research.
