Education, not entertainment 11 novembre 2009
Par G. Norton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Defoe's book may be the first true English novel. Published 290 years ago and loosely based on the experiences of an English castaway rescued 300 years ago, The Life and Strange Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe has become a part of our culture, universally known by educated English speakers though rarely read outside of a high school or college literature class. And a rare high school it would be that assigned it.

The style is foreign to moderns, and many of the attitudes repugnant. But, if you have any multicultural inclinations, you must acknowledge that Defoe's culture is no less legitimate than our own.

Not particularly entertaining for moderns, Robinson Crusoe reveals much about the culture that nurtured John Locke and created the British Empire and the (often ignored) traditions of liberty, equality, and rule of law that led to modern America with its power, flaws, and ability to inspire all peoples.

People will be reading this book long after Clancy and Ludlum are forgotten and dropped from the library shelves. It will be read not for entertainment but to learn about a culture.

A very useful edition 3 septembre 2009
Par Richard B. Schwartz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Robinson Crusoe is available in multiple editions. This is a useful one. The text is complete; the introduction is intelligent; the notes are good. There are reaction quotes from such figures as Coleridge, Rousseau and Marx. Most of all, the text is readable and the edition is inexpensive. I have used it in class for several years now and the cover and pages remain intact. Of the editions available, for the price, this is one of the very best.

Didn't want it to end 10 juillet 2003
Par Jennifer B. Barton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a wonderful book on many levels. Despite his father forbidding it and providing sound advice about taking the moderate road, Robinson yearns to become a seaman. From the moment he directly disobeys his father and goes to sea, the Hand of Providence becomes central to the plot. From shipwrecks to slavery the point seems to keep being driven home to him that he is not following the correct path. When he begins living in the manner that he is 'supposed' to live, he excels and would do well. Each time he steps out of line, however, he is slapped with disaster until Providence is his sole companion and he has a wealth of time to consider his choices. It is an intriguing look at the grip religion had on the people of DeFoe's time as well as one hell of a great adventure story. I wished that it would keep on going.

did not translate well to the Kindle 5 août 2010
Par KRJ - Publié sur Amazon.com

Since I got my Kindle I have been strictly alternating between modern literature and classics. Robinson Crusoe seemed a perfect choice when it got time to read my next classic.

I would like to say that I have given the novel a fair shot - but I just can't get over how poorly this was recreated for the Kindle. I'm not sure if Defoe actually spelled so many words incorrectly himself (I acknowledge that language was not as standardized during his time as it is today), but I have to cringe when I read a sentence such as: "As for the smaller thing, I made them with better success, such as little round pots, flat dishes, pitchers, and pipkins, the fun baking them very hard."
I highly doubt Defoe would have written "fun" in place of the word "sun."

The Kindle editors need to work a little bit harder when republishing a classic into e-book format.

Back to the Source 27 juin 2010
Par Roger Brunyate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Who and what are we, as human beings? What qualities are innate to us, and which have been layered upon us by culture and convention? This is one of several profound questions posed by Defoe's great novel of 1719 which, so far from being a simple adventure story for children, was to become one of the seminal documents of 18th-century thought. I read it in abridged form as a child, and more seriously in college, but it meant little to me then. Recently, however, I have been reading a lot of Australian literature -- let me cite Patrick White's VOSS as a prime example -- that explores aspects of a similar theme: man reduced to his most basic essence, and his relationship to a culture abandoned at home and needing to be rebuilt from scratch abroad. What better than to go back to the grandfather of all such writing, ROBINSON CRUSOE?

While I haven't compared other editions, this one from Barnes & Noble is certainly pleasant and convenient. It has an attractive NC Wyeth illustration on the cover, it is clearly printed, easy to hold in the hand, and contains a modest amount of footnotes glossing words which are unfamiliar or have changed their meaning. It also includes an excellent introduction by LJ Swingle that puts the main themes into context. Reading it as an afterword, I found that Swingle had already expressed most of my own reactions to the book, much more eloquently than I could do myself.

A few of these nonetheless. I was surprised by the pacing of the book. For a start, Crusoe has several adventures before he reaches the island, including suffering shipwreck off the east coast of England on his very first journey by sea, being captured as a slave by North African pirates, and setting up a plantation in Brazil employing his own indentured laborers. Indeed, he is on a voyage back to Africa to buy slaves when the famous shipwreck occurs. While Defoe might have used this for a polemic against slavery, he doesn't; indeed on his return to civilization, Crusoe finds himself enriched by the profits of three decades of slave labor on his plantation. Nonetheless, this does set up a strong contrast with the state Crusoe finds himself in when he has to make and do everything for himself. Yet here too I was surprised; so far from coming to the island empty-handed, Crusoe manages to salvage an enormous amount from the wrecked ship; he had enough gunpowder, for instance, to last for almost thirty years.

It was also fascinating to watch religion taking root in that barren soil. Crusoe is presented at first as no more than a conventionally religious man, and he curses Providence for thrusting him into such calamity. But gradually he begins to find religion a necessity to enable him to understand and appreciate his new life -- at one point literally counting his blessings. So that by the time he becomes aware that the island is occasionally visited by cannibals, it is his religious philosophy that guides him on how to treat them. Defoe's outlook is frankly Christian, as opposed to the Naturism of Rousseau, whose EMILE praises CRUSOE as indispensable, or the rationality of Voltaire, whose CANDIDE is a satirical attack on the very notion of a benevolent Providence.

I was interested that the cannibal sequence, starting with the famous footprint in the sand, begins beyond the halfway point in the book, and in the last two or three years of Crusoe's stay on the island. It takes Crusoe a quarter-century to learn to live alone; only then does Defoe bring social aspects back into play, by distinct stages but in an accelerating rhythm. First, he is forced to think defensively, surrounded by potential enemies. Next he must engage those enemies, rescuing one of their victims, his man Friday. Then there is a period of living together, as master and servant, teacher and pupil. Then the number of subjects in his little kingdom increases to three. Finally, he is involved in putting down the mutiny on an English ship, becoming commando leader, judge, and admiral. There is one delicious moment when he represents himself, not as the Governor of the island, but as somebody speaking for the Governor, who remains in his fastness unseen. A WIZARD OF OZ situation, perhaps, but also one in which Crusoe becomes a kind of god. It was interesting to see the tropes of civilization rushing in over the final pages, like water through a breach. But at the same time, I found it a little sad, and yearned for a return to that pristine Eden.
