Analyze Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe as both a picaresque and a sociological novel.
One might consider Robinson Crusoe a picaresque novel because Crusoe deals with the same issues of many picaresque protagonists, like hunger, poverty, and survival. However, his isolated environment causes his problems, not his disordered society, which means it is not a completely picaresque novel. Similarly, while Robinson Crusoe depicts social problems like colonization, it was not intended to highlight social problems like sociological novels are. Instead, it is a book that should be analyzed through a sociological lens.
