Crusoes and Other Castaways in Modern French Literature: Solitary Adventures by Joseph Acquisto examines the representation of Robinson Crusoe and other castaways in both popular and serious French literature for both children and adults from the early nineteenth to the twenty-first century. It examines not only novels but lyric poetry, providing not just a literary history but interpretation of a wide range of canonical and non-canonical authors.
