Hi, could anyone help me? I'm writing an essey on Traditional Robinsonades, but I'm not sure if Robinson Crusoe supported slavery or not? How does Defoe seem to comment on the institution of slavery and issues of race? Does Robinson represent British colonialism and imperialism, is this novel glorifying the subjugation of other cultures?
