Analysis of Major Characters
Robinson Crusoe
 While he is no flashy hero or grand epic adventurer,
Robinson Crusoe displays character traits that have won
him the approval of generations of readers. His
perseverance in spending months making a canoe, and in
practicing pottery making until he gets it right. Additionally,
his resourcefulness in building a home, dairy, grape arbor,
country house, and goat stable from practically nothing is
clearly remarkable. Crusoe is never interested in
portraying himself as a hero in his own narration. Crusoe
prefers to depict himself as an ordinary sensible man,
never as an exceptional hero.
Robin Cruose
• But Crusoe’s admirable qualities must be weighed against the
flaws in his character. Crusoe seems incapable of deep
feelings, as shown by his cold account of leaving his family—
he worries about the religious consequences of disobeying his
father, but never displays any emotion about leaving. Though
he is generous toward people, as when he gives gifts to his
sisters and the captain, Crusoe reveals very little tender or
sincere affection in his dealings with them.. His insistence on
dating events makes sense to a point, but it ultimately ends up
seeming obsessive and irrelevant when he tells us the date on
which he grinds his tools but neglects to tell us the date of a
very important event like meeting Friday.
Robin Cruose
 Finally, while not boasting of heroism, Crusoe is
nonetheless very interested in possessions, power,
and prestige.. His teaching Friday to call him
“Master,” even before teaching him the words for
“yes” or “no,” seems obnoxious even under the
racist standards of the day, as if Crusoe needs to
hear the ego-boosting word spoken as soon as
possible. Overall, Crusoe’s virtues tend to be
private. Defoe gives us a fascinating glimpse into
the successes, failures, and contradictions of
modern man.
