I recommend highly Professor Shinagel's authoritative edition of Defoe's classic work. What is most illuminating about this work is the critical and historical framework he uses to contextualize perception of the Crusoe myth--and the enduring appeal of the novel--throughout the last three centuries. He calls upon a stimulating and varied audience of critical reception--from Rousseau and Coleridge to Watt and Damrosch--to accomplish this. In this respect, Professor Shinagel does Defoe great justice, as this is one of the eminently lucid and enjoyable Norton critical editions you are likely to encounter. An outstanding instructor; as well you can imagine.
