|Plot Summary of Robinson Crusoe|
|"Robinson Crusoe tells the story of his life on an island for 27 seven years. He learns to survive for more than 20 years there, until one day he finds a human foot print which is not his, and he's scared to death by the discovery: he knows he's surrounded by canibal barbarians living on the opposite shore of the island. Soon after, he witnesses a human sacrifice, but one of the preys escape from this slashing. Robinson rescues him, and names his new servant 'Friday', in honor of the day he saved him. Friday is taught to speak English and is introduced to the Bible, the only book Robinson found in his sunk ship.
Friday tells his master of the region where he used to live: there were white bearded people, like Robinson himself, that remains abandoned after another shipwreck. Yet another event unfolds when another ship, victim of a mutiny, arrives in the island. Crusoe and Friday help the Captain and the prisoners to retrieve the ship, finally escaping from the island with the help of these men. Back in London again, Crusoe learns of the new life and the new civilization that has evolved since he was left ashore in an island, 27 years ago."
Augusto Wong Campos, Resident Scholar
