Defoe is notable for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularise the form in Britain and along with others such as Richardson, is among the founders of the English novel. A prolific and versatile writer, he wrote more than 500 books, pamphlets and journals on various topics (including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology and the supernatural). He was also a pioneer of economic journalism.

Robinson Crusoe is a young Englishman who leaves his comfortable home to seek adventure at sea. One day a fierce storm wrecks his ship, and the waves wash him onto an island. He is alone, with no food, no house and only the clothes he is wearing. Although Daniel Defoe wrote Robinson Crusoe nearly 300 years ago, people continue to be fascinated by this story of how Crusoe survived and made a life for himself on a lonely tropical island.
