1. The history of Daniel Dafoe
(1)Daniel Dafoe was born in or about the year 1660, and he came of good middle-class Yeoman stock. His father’s name was Foe , but he added the prefix on no better grounds than a personal whim.
(2)Daniel Defoe, then, was a middle-class, common-sense Englishman who, in spite of a knowledge of either Languages, spoke and wrote plain, strong, middleclass English withut polish or any sort of pomposity or erudition.
(3) In point of grammar and spelling he was careless, perhaps ignorant, but the vitality of his style is such that it sweeps everything before it, and grammatical crudities do not seem to manner.
(4) Defoe wrote to sell. he made a great deal of money by his writings, and built himself’ a very handsome house’ at Stoke Newington.
(5) He was a middle-sized, spare man of a brown cmplexion, and dark brwn hair, but wears a wig; a hooked nose, a sharp chin. grey eyss , and large mole near his mouth. such was the description published when the author was’wanted’ to stand in the pillory-which he did three times for his political wrirings. For he wrote about everything. Before he even began his novels he had written more than two hundred treatises, pamphlets, and booklets on all sorts of subject.
(6) But his genius as an originator culminated in his invention of the novel. He is the father of all Novelists.
(7) Strictly speaking, Robinson Criusoe, and the rest are brilliant autobiographical adventures stories, and novels as we now understand the term. That is to say, there is no subtle psychological anlysis, and indeed no plot-one just goes on with one adventure after another. There is very little humour or poignancy as in the greaqt novels. His book are simpleymarvelous examples of the adventure stry as told by oneself. But for all that he is the originator of all novels, including that great novel-by-accident.
(8) Daniel Dofoe was brn in 1660 and diedn in 1731. no photography that day, only lithographic picture of Dofoe still exist now.The book cover with his profile look at the illustrations.
2.The content of Robinson Crusoe
(1)The first part of Robinson Crusoe is, without question, by far greatest work Daniel Defoe ever produced. In power and hold are extraordinary, especially when one remembers his careless in the matter of grammar and phraeology, and his prospensity to moralize on all occasions in the cruder manner. Wherein lies the power which has placed Robinsn Crusoe among the immortals. One may suggest two outstanding reason fr the book’s tremendous popularitry and influence.
First, the power of his writing lies in its truth- the pilling up of innumerable apparently trivial details till the reader’s mind is battered into acceptance. One feels unconsciously that this vast accumulated sequence of trivialities is just what life is , and must be true. Otherwise hw could the author remember them, and why bother to put them dwn, In this great story the author is the lonely sailor, the impression is conveyed in this way with absolute conviction.
(2) Part II tells of Crusoe’s adventures and perils by sea, of his strange and unexpected doings in China, of his gret journey by caravan to the Great Wall of China-which affected to despite-and thence right across Asia, into Russia and finally by sea to England. Here again adventures come thick, the narrative is strng and rapid,while detail after trivial detai give in the stamp of authenticity.
Lets we read together, the part of adventure Robinson Crusoe :
(1) With these I carry’d a taylor, who had offer’sd himself to go passenger to the East Indies with my nephew, but afterwards consented to stay on our new plantation, and prov’d a most necessery handly fellow as could be desir’d, in many other businesses besides that of this trade; for as I observ’d fomerly, necessity arms us for all emplyment..
My cargo, as near as I can collect, for I have not kept an account of the particulars, consisted of a sufficient quantity of linnen,and some thin English stuff for cloathing the Spaniards that I expected to find there, and enough f them as by my caculation might comfortably supply them for seven years.
I carry’s also an hundred spare arms, muskets, and fuzees, besides some pistols, a considerable quantity of shot of all size, and two pieces of brass cannon; and because I knew not what time and what extremities. I was prviding for, I carried an hundred barrels of powder, besides swords, custlasses, and the iron part of some pikes and halberts; so that in short we had a large magazine of all sorts of stores; and i made my nephew carry to small quater-deck guns more than he wanted for his ship, to leave behind if there was occasion; that when we came there; and indeed, I at first thought there was need enough for it all, and much more, if we hop’d to maintain out possesion of the island, as shall be seen in the course of that story.
(2)We found her a ship of Bristol, bound hme from Barbads, but had been blown out of the rad at Barbadoes a few day before she was redy to sail, by a terrible hurricane, while the captain and chief mate werr both gne on shore, so that beside the trrr of the storm,they were but in an indifferent case gd artist to bring the ship home.
(3)the next day, giving them a salute f five guns at parting, we set sail, and arriv’d at the bay of All-saints in the Brasils in about 22 days; meeting nthing reamarkable in our passage but this, that about three days after we sail’d, being becalm’d, and the current setting strng t the ENE, running, as it were, int a bay or gulph on the land side, we were driven something out of course, and once r twice out man cry’d land to the eastward; but wheter it was the cntinent of islands, we could not tell by any means.
(4) From Brasils, we made directly away over the Atlantic Sea, to the Cape de bon Esperance r as we call it, the Cape of Good Hope; and had a tlerable god voyage, ut course generally sut-east; now and then storm, and some contrary winds, but my disasters at sea were at and end. Our ship was on trading voyage, and had a supra-cargo n board,sho was to direct all her mtions after the she arrived at the Cape; nly being limited to certain number f days, for stay, by charter-party, at the several part se was to go to.
(5)We tok twenty stout fellows with us any in the ship, besides the supracargo and myself, and we landed two hours before midninght, at the same place whete the Indians std drawn up the evening before; I landed here, because my design, as I have said, was chiefly to see if they had quitted the filed, and if they had left any marks behind them of the mischief we had done them; and I thought, if we could suprise one or tw of them, perhaps we might get our man again by way f exchange.
(6)But this was not all; I had a kind of impatiance upn me to be nearer home, and yet the most unsettled resolutin imaginable which way to go; in the interval f these consultations, my friend, who was always upn the search fr business, prps’d another voyage to me amng the spice island, and to bring home a loading of cloves from the manilas, ore threabouts; places where indeed the Dutch do trade, but islands belnging partly to the spanbiards; tho’ we went not so far, but to some other, where thay have not the whole pwer as they have at Batavia, Ceylon. we were not long in preparing for this voyage; the chief difficulty was in bringing me to come into it; however, at last nothing else offering, and finding that reallybstirring abut and trading, the profit being so great, and as I may say sertain, had mre pleasure in it, and mre satisfaction to the mind, than sitting still, which, t me especially, was the unhappiest part of life; I resolv’d n this voyage too, which was made very successfully, toucjing at Borneo and several islands, whse names I d not remember, and came hme in abut five months.
(7)But to be short with my speculation, a little while after this, there came in a Dutch ship from Batavia; she was a caster, not an european trader, and f about two hundred ton burthen; the men, as they pretented, having been so sickly that the captain had nt men enough to go to sea with, he lay by at bengal, and having it seems gt money enough, n being willing for other reasons t go for Europe, he gave public ntice that he would sell his ship.
(8)In this vyage, being by cntrary winds blig’d to beat up and down a great while in the Straits of Mallaca, and among the islands, we were no soner got clear f thse difficult seas, but we fund ur ship had sprung a leak, and we were nt able by all our industry to find it out where it was. This fore’d us t make for some port, and my partner who knew the cuntry better than I did, directed the captain to put into the river of Cambodia, fr I had made the english mate, ne Mr Thompsn, captain, not being willing t take the charge of the ship upon my self. This river lies on the northside of the great bay or gulph which goes to Siam
(9) I thought it was now so much in our choice, t make the ld man carry us whither we would, that i began t talk with him abut carrying us to the Gulph of Nanquin, which is the mst nothern part of the coast of China. the ldman said he knew the Gulp of Nanquin very well but smilling, ask’d us what we would do there.
I told him we would sell our cargo, and purchase China-wares, callicoes, raw-silk, tea, wrught-silk etc and so would return by the sane course we came. He told us our best port had been to have put in a Macao, where we could not ahve fail’d of a market fr our pium to our satisfaction, and might fr our mney have purchas’d all sorts of China-goods, as cheap as we could at nanquin.
(10)We had a mind to go and see the great city of Peeking, and the famus curt of the monarch of China. ‘Why,then’ says the ld man,’you should go to Ningpo, where, by the river which runs into the sea there, you may go up within five leagues of the Great canals’
(110I had indeed a mind to see the city of Peking, which I had heard so much f, and father Simon importun’d me daily to do it; at lenght ghis time of going away being set, and the other missionary, who was to go with him, being arriv’d from Macao.
At length we arriv’d at peking; I had no body with me but the youth, who my nephew, the captain, had given me to attend me as a servant,and who proved very trusry and deligent.
In two days more we passd to the Great China wall,made for a fortification against the Tartars; and a very great wrk it is, going over hills and mountains in aneedless track, where the rocks are impassible, and the precipices such as no enemy culd pssibly enter, or indeed climp up or where if they di,n wall could hinder them. They tell us, its length is near a thusand English miles, but that the cuntry is five hundred is a strait measured line, which the wall bounds, without measuring the windings and turnings it takes;’tis about four fathom high, and as many thick in some places. I stood still an hour r thereabout, without trespassing out orders, for so long the caravan was in passing the gate; I say, I stood still an hour to lok at it on every side, near and far off, I mean, that was within my view; and the guide of our caravan, who had been extolling it for the wonder of the world, was mighty eager to hear my opinion of it. I told him it was a most excellent thing to keep off the Tartars; which he happen’d not to understand as I meant it, and so tok it for a compliment; but the old pilot laugh’d.
