Sample text

To introduce his subsequent adventures, Crusoe berates himself in much the same language that he uses to describe his first leaving England forty years earlier: ‘‘expect to read of the follies of an old man, not warn’d by his own harms, much less those of other men, to beware of the like; not cool’d by almost forty years’ misery and disappointments, not satisfy’d with prosperity beyond expectation, not made cautious by affliction and distress beyond imitation’’ (374). But this moralistic rhetoric hardly describes Crusoe’s adventures in the Far East.
