Annotation

The sequel to the much better known 1719 Defoe, The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. This volume begins, after some adventures at sea, with a return to Crusoe’s island and the experiences of the people he had left there. There are conflicts with the natives from a neighboring island and many trials and tribulations, but the settlement is generally presented positively. The rest of the work is primarily adventure in various voyages. A third volume was published. See Serious Reflections During the Life and Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe: With His Vision of the Angelick World. Written by Himself. London: Ptd. for W. Taylor, 1720. Rpt. without the “Vision of the Angelick World.” In Modern British Utopias 1700-1850. Ed. Gregory Claeys. 8 vols. (London: Pickering & Chatto, 1997), 1: 113-266; and with the “Vision of the Angelick World” as Serious Reflections During the Life and Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe: With His Vision of the Angelick World. Ed. George A. Aitkin. Illus. J. B. Yeats. London: J. M. Dent, 1895; rpt. New York: AMS Press, 1974; and in The Novels of Daniel Defoe. Volume 3: Serious Reflections During the Life and Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe (1720). Ed. G. A. Starr. London: Pickering & Chatto, 2008, with an “Introduction” by Starr (1-47). It is not a utopia, but Defoe says it lays out the moral basis of the first two volumes.
