Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe

  

by Daniel Defoe

Analysis: Narrator Point of View

Who is the narrator, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?

Robinson Crusoe tells his own story retrospectively from his personal point of view. This means we get to read every little detail that goes on his head – very important, since we'll be interested in the interior spiritual awakening that Crusoe undergoes over the course of the novel.
