Daniel Defoe is known as the father of the English novel. Virginia Woolf described Moll Flanders and Roxana as 'among the few novels ... one can call indisputably great'; and Robinson Crusoe is one of the most enduring characters in English literature.

Defoe wrote ten novels including two lesser known sequels to Robinson Crusoe. This is the first authoritative scholarly edition of all his novels. Carefully selected copy texts are supported by extensive new editorial material explaining the novels' publishing history and details of later parodies, sequels and adaptations. The editorial material includes a substantial introduction to each novel, full explanatory endnotes, textual notes, and a consolidated index in the final volume.
