Defoe III

  • David Trotter
Part of the Language, Discourse, Society book series


The conclusion of Robinson Crusoe informs us that it is not in fact the conclusion (pp. 298–9). There is more to tell. After returning from the island, Crusoe tries to settle down. He buys a farm. But his wife dies and he embarks on another voyage, in a ship captained by his nephew. This voyage, and the ‘Distemper of wandring’ which drove him to it, become the subject of his Farther Adventures.1
