Daniel Defoe's great masterpiece; in a gorgeous new clothbound edition designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith. These delectable and collectible Penguin editions are bound in high-quality colourful; tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design 'I walk'd about on the shore; lifting up my hands; and my whole being; as I may say; wrapt up in the contemplation of my deliverance ... reflecting upon all my comrades that were drown'd; and that there should not be one soul sav'd but my self ... ' Who has not dreamed of life on an exotic isle; far away from civilization? Here is the novel which has inspired countless imitations by lesser writers; none of which equal the power and originality of Defoe's famous book. Robinson Crusoe; set ashore on an island after a terrible storm at sea; is forced to make do with only a knife; some tobacco; and a pipe. He learns how to build a canoe; make bread; and endure endless solitude. That is; until; twenty-four years later; when he confronts another human being. First published in 1719; Robinson Crusoe has been praised by such writers as James Joyce; Virginia Woolf; and Samuel Johnson as one of the greatest novels in the English language. 'Robinson Crusoe has a universal appeal; a story that goes right to the core of existence' Simon Armitage
