“Robinson Crusoe after 300 Years” “a ‘must have'”

Robinson Crusoe after 300 Years

Edited by Andreas K.E. Mueller and Glynis Ridley

“As Andreas K.E. Mueller and Glynis Ridley’s excellent collection of essays celebrating Robinson Crusoe’s 300th anniversary shows, Defoe’s narrative has never stopped engaging readers and has worked its way into Anglo-American culture in a surprising variety of ways. Essays in the collection by eleven scholars, both established and emerging, demonstrate how this intriguing novel continues to generate fresh interpretive possibilities. This collection of essays is a ‘must-have’ for teaching and thinking about Defoe’s most famous novel.”
