Abstract [en]

This essay analyses Daniel Defoe's novel The life and adventures of Robinson Crusoe from a post-colonial point of view. The essat discusses the relationship between Robinson Crusoe and the animals living on the island where he has been stranded. The main focus is on why a character like Robinson Crusoe sees himself as a authority and superiority in company of animals. Furthermore the essay also discusses the value of animals, why Crusoe thinks certain animals are more valuable than others. The essay also illuminates Enlightenment and modernity and in what ways the ideas and weapons that were produced during that time period affected Crusoe's relationship with the animals that were living on the island.
