Losing yourself in a novel is a way to treat your imagination. Get shipwrecked on a tropical Island with Robinson Crusoe and Friday as they try to sustain themselves while battling cannibals, mutineers, and God Himself. Crusoe loves adventure; loves the sea and sailing and discovering new worlds. He leaves England on a ship to be wrecked by a storm. Never one to be deterred, Crusoe sets off again, this time only to be attacked by pirates. Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe was the first novel ever written in the English language. Many readers fail to consider how important a development in the world of our language this novel really is. Defoe's novel was the premier example of taking a concept and using narrative prose and dialogue to express the story. Essentially what Defoe does here is spin a yarn; it is a very simple story told in relatively simple terms. It is, indeed, the turning point English literature.
