have a relation to the disorder of the human mind without a logical sequence of events Robinson Crusoe, At the age of 19 Robinson decides leave his home in order to travel around the world and make his fortune >This is an act of transgression because his father wanted him to be a lawyer to be part of the middle class and Robinson wanted to find his own identity By Daniel Defoe 1719 During his second voyage he is captured by moorish pirates but manages to escape He's rescued by a Portuguese ship and brought to Brazil, where he became the owner of a plantation -> He travels to Africa to get more slaves but he's shipwrecked (naufragato) on a desert island where he'll remain for 28 years Robinson writes a diary where he records his experiences After 12 years of solitude he finds a human footprint on the shore (riva), some human bones and flesh left by cannibals. He decides to attack them -> He saves one of their captives, whom he calls Friday and teaches him his language and his religion Thank to god, he began to believe that he was happier in this situation of forsaken (abbandono) and loneliness than when he was living in society He gradually rebuilds the same kind of society as exist in England WHY IS ROBINSON CONSIDERED THE PROTOTYPE OF ENGLISH COLONISER? Robinson thinks he's superior to the indigenous people because he's white. We understand this because he under-lights that Friday is more like white people than 'negroes' ones in attitude and appearance. Robinson, as a coloniser, saved Friday and right after that, he gave him a name, ordered him to not eat other men, taught him his own religion and his English language to say 'Master','yes' and 'no'. Robinson didn't care about Friday's real name and culture, he created a new identity for him and the old one didn't matter. He wasn't bad looking like other black people: he didn't have such a big and flat nose, his lips were thin, his teeth were white and well set, he didn't have curly hair and his skin was not that black and so, because of that, Robinson could accept him as his own servant. In addiction to this concept, Friday was accepted by Robinson because he had a very good countenance, he gave all the appearance of being an European. The novel ends with Robinson's return to England and his discovery that his plantation has prospered and made him very rich The island is the ideal place to prove his qualities, to demonstrate that he deserved to be saved by God's providence He was the only one that survived the shipwreck, the first thing that he did on the island was to look up and thank God that my life was saved' even tho there was little chance of hope: he could have died of starvation, he was wet and had no clothes and no weapons, he just had a knife, a tobacco-pipe and a little tobacco in a box He had much to do on that island-> He was very seldom idle' (raramente pigro) >His daily routine consisted in reading the bible many times a day, provide themselves some food and preserving and cooking the animals he shot or the fruits and vegetables he picked. He was also busy improving his fortress (like building a shelf without tools)
