Defoe, Daniel - Life, Adventures and Piracies of the Famous Captain Singleton, The

Another classic converted by

«That all Defoe's novels, with the exception of «Robinson Crusoe,» should have been covered with the dust of neglect for many generations, is a plain proof of how much fashions in taste affect the popularity of the British classics. It is true that three generations or so ago, Defoe's works were edited by both Sir Walter Scott and Hazlitt, and that this masterly piece of realism, «Captain Singleton,» was reprinted a few years back in «The Camelot Classics,» but it is safe to say that out of every thousand readers of «Robinson Crusoe» only one or two will have even heard of the «Memoirs of a Cavalier,» «Colonel Jack,» «Moll Flanders,» or "Captain Singleton.»
