Robinson Crusoe / Ροβινσόνας Κρούσος
This is one of the world’s greatest and most popular novels of adventure. The story of a modest, never-say-die hero battling for survival on a desert island had captivated readers ever since its publication in 1719. This sensitive abridgement presents all the book’s major incidents in Daniel Defoe’s own words, thereby capturing the essence of this 18th-century classic for today’s readers. However, as you would expect being a Dorling Kindersley book, there is much more to this edition than an expert retelling of the story. The fascinating themes of Robinson Crusoe and its historical and geographical background are also explored, with insights into Defoe’s extraordinary life and turbulent times. The innovative use of photography and illustration includes a unique, specially researched map of Crusoe’s exotic, imaginary island which puts Crusoe’s plight into perspective. The additional material also re-creates the hazardous life of the 17th-century sailor and explores the long-lasting impact this book has had on world culture.
