Description


Defoe’s The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe was almost always published together with The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. Only after 1950 was the first volume printed alone—a shorter work for some classes. But in addition to fulfilling the promise of the first volume, The Farther Adventures is an exciting adventure novel by itself. Crusoe returns to his island to learn about his colony, and then travels to Madagascar, India, and China before returning to England after some exciting encounters. Complete with an introduction, line notes, and full bibliographical notes, this is an edition like no other.

Praise For…


"With its informative introduction and annotations by Novak, Rothman, and Schonhorn, this new edition is a welcome attempt to restore The Farther Adventures’ status as an essential part of the Crusoe story. Continuing its hero’s exploration of global religious and cultural differences, Farther Adventures takes Crusoe from Europe to the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Russia. The urgent questions Defoe explores will fascinate anyone interested in early eighteenth-century ideas about the nature of humanity and English understandings of the wider world. An exemplary instance of literary and bibliographical scholarship, the Stoke-Newington edition of The Farther Adventures is also a great adventure story with the power to enthrall readers."
