Robinson Crusoe Robinson Crusoe Kreutznaer was born in 1632 His father desperately wanted Robinson to work with the law but Robinson wanted to go to sea and see the world This shows the character of Robinson as independent and stubborn when he then sets sail at the age of nineteen without his fathers permission or his blessing To Robinsons dismay the ship he set sail with sunk and though he was safe at a port he decided that he could not go home and face the ridicule of parentsSoon after this he set sail on another voyage but this time his ship was captured and plundered by a Turkish rover of Salee He was forced to be the servant of the captain of that ship until he was conveniently aboard a ship with enough supplies to attempt an escape He escaped with a boy named Xury and was later picked up by a Portuguese ship headed for Brazil When Crusoe got to Brazil he immediately wanted to start a sugar plantation like some of the ones he had seen as he toured the countryside of Brazil He started this plantation and it grew to large proportions so large in fact that he and other plantation owners needed more slaves to help run it Crusoe and other plantation owners decided to go on a voyage to Africa for slaves until their ship was hit by major storms and hurled off course and eventually shipwrecked on a deserted island Crusoe was the only survivor of the crash and he must now learn to live on an uninhabited island in order to survive This brings us to the setting for the rest of the story which is a small island no larger than five miles wide and five miles long in the southern Pacific Ocean where Crusoe is stranded with no hope of a rescue He find that his ship though half destroyed lays upon some rocks
