Beschreibung

'Nothing can describe the confusion of thought which I felt when I sank into the water; for though I swam very well, yet I could not deliver myself from the waves so as to draw breath, till that wave having driven me, or rather carried me, a vast way on towards the shore, and having spent itself, went back, and left me upon the land almost dry, but half dead with the water I took in. I had so much presence of mind, as well as breath left, that seeing myself nearer the mainland than I expected, I got upon my feet, and endeavoured to make on towards the land as fast as I could before another wave should return and take me up again; but I soon found it was impossible to avoid it; for I saw the sea come after me as high as a great hill, and as furious as an enemy, which I had no means or strength to contend with: my business was to hold my breath, and raise myself upon the water if I could; and so, by swimming, to preserve my breathing, and pilot myself towards the shore, if possible, my greatest concern now being that the sea, as it would carry me a great way towards the shore when it came on, might not carry me back again with it when it gave back towards the sea.' 'Robinson Crusoe' by Daniel Defoe is presented as an autobiography of a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical desert island. It was first published in 1719. 'Robinson Crusoe' has become one of the most widely published books in history.

Daniel Defoe (1660 - 1731), was an English trader, writer, and journalist. He is most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe, which is second only to the Bible in its number of translations.
