From the Paper:

"Daniel Defoe's novel 'Robinson Crusoe' is a critically acclaimed work of literature that embodies a developmental consciousness within its characterization, as well as a multi-faceted thematic scheme intrinsic of the eighteenth century novel. Defoe enables his reader's the ability to extrapolate hidden themes and vital aspects of characterization through detailed accounts of the voyages and adventures that the protagonist, Robinson Crusoe, experiences within the course of his lifetime. More specifically; on page 153 of the novel, with the discovery of footprints in the sand on Crusoe's beach, Defoe illustrates a dichotomy within Crusoe's character which must be acknowledged in order for the reader to most aptly understand the depth of the novels characterization. Through the usage of quotations and textual analysis, Crusoe's dichotomy will be analyzed and interpreted in order to help find consistencies within Crusoe's attitudes and desires throughout the text, as well as develop and deepen the reader's sense of Robinson's character."
