Myths of modern individualism : Faust, Don Quixote, Don Juan, Robinson Crusoe by Ian Watt( Book )

43 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three represent the positive drive of individualism, which brings down on itself repression by social disapproval. A century later, Defoe's Robinson Crusoe embodies a more favorable consideration of the individual, but only if one refuses to take seriously Defoe's statement that Crusoe's isolation is punishment for disobeying his father
