Robinson Crusoe parted with his friend and decided to travel to London by land. Robinson Crusoe was ashamed to go home and face his parents and that his neighbors might laugh at him. 3
In London, he became more and more reluctant to go home and soon put all notion of returning out of his mind. He was very lucky to fall in with some good company. 4
One person he met was the captain of a ship which was about to go to the Guinea coast of Africa for trading. The captain took a fancy to young Crusoe and told him that he could come along at no expense. 5
Thus, Crusoe entered “into a strict friendship with this captain, who was an honest and plain dealing man.” On this voyage, Crusoe carried forty pounds with him, which was invested in toys and trifles for trading. 6
This was on of the most successful voyages that he ever had since he was able to trade his travels for five pounds, nine ounces of gold dust, which yielded three hundred pounds. 7

-* The Character of Robinson Crusoe is basedon the life and the story of a scot man namedAlexander.* He was a sailor and 19 years old.* Daniel Defoe used the same story but in adifferent way.
•* His first contrivance was to speak to theMoor to get something to stay on board.•* He told him we must not presume to eatour patron’s bread.* So, he brought a large basket ofRusk, biscuit and three jars with freshwater into the boat.* He knew where the case of bottles , itwas evident , he conveyed them into theboat while the moor was on shore.* Another trick he tried upon him whichinnocently came into also . His name Ismaeland he called him Moely.* Then the wind blew from the north-northeast which was contrary to his desireto the coast of Spain.
* After he and the moor fished nothing and wentback to the boat , he stepped forward to wherethe moor was , pretend to stop for something, took him by suspires into the sea , he beggedto be taken in and told him we will go over theworld.He said I had done no hurt and , will do no harmbut if you come near the boat I’ll shoot you , themoor reached the shore , he was an excellentswimmer.* when he was gone he turned to the boy whothy called Xury and said “ if you will be faithfulto me I’ll make you a great man “
* as soon as it grew dusk in the evening hechanged his course and directly south and byeast , that he might keep in with the shore.* yet such was the fright I had taken at themoors and the dreadful apprehensions thathad of falling into their hands , Xury wasdreadfully frighted, But both more frightedwhen they heard mighty creatures comeswimming to there boat.
After a good voyage, Crusoe landed in Brazil twenty-two days later. The captain was very generous with Crusoe, charging him nothing for the voyage and, instead, paying him twenty ducats for a leopards skin and forty for the lions skin. Furthermore, by selling all of his goods he made about two hundred and twenty pieces of eight.
Crusoe lived with a planter on a sugar plantation for some time and learned the manner of planting. He later purchased as much land as his money would buy. For the first two years, he planted mainly for food, but by the third year, he planted some tobacco and prepared ground for cane. Now he realized that he should not have sold Xury because he was in need of help on his plantation.
Soon Crusoe discovered that he was "coming into the very middle station, or upper degree of low life, which my father advised me to before." He was amused by this fact because he could have stayed at home and arrived at the same position without all of his adventures.
Since his plantation was at a great distance even from his nearest neighbor, Crusoe often thought that he "lived just like a man cast away upon some desolate island that had nobody there but himself." In retrospect, he was thankful for the slight desolation he had on his plantation
The Portuguese captain remained for three months and, during this time, Crusoe told him of the money (two hundred pounds) which he had left in London with the English captains widow.
The captain advised him to send for one half of his money so that if that half were lost, he would still have the other half left. Crusoe wrote to the widow and had her send the money to Lisbon. He wrote the widow about all of his adventures, and she was so thankful for his safety that she sent the Portuguese captain five pounds out of her own pocket.
CHARACTER LIST Robinson Crusoe: the main character of the story, he is a rebellious youth with an inexplicable need to travel. Because of this need, he brings misfortune on himself and is left to fend for himself in a primitive land. The novel essentially chronicles his mental and spiritual development as a result of his isolation. He is a contradictory character; at the same time he is practical ingenuity and immature decisiveness.
Xury: a friend/servant of Crusoes, he also escapes from the Moors. A simple youth who is dedicated to Crusoe, he is admirable for his willingness to stand by the narrator. However, he does not think for himself.
Friday: another friend/servant of Crusoes, he spends a number of years on the island with the main character, who saves him from cannibalistic death. Friday is basically Crusoes protege, a living example of religious justification of the slavery relationship between the two men. His eagerness to be redone in the European image is supposed to convey that this image is indeed the right one.
Crusoes father: although he appears only briefly in the beginning, he embodies the theme of the merits of Protestant, middle-class living. It is his teachings from which Crusoe is running, with poor success.
