Gulliver's travels & Robinson Crusoe are both novels which were written at the same period and they both had an accidents in the sea. They both were located in isolated islands and they met different kinds of people.

 

The two novels are different from each other in more than one way and I am going to present the differences in a number of points .

 

First of all , In Gulliver's travels the main character was a man called Lemuel Gulliver’s. he is a traveler and in each journey he had to come upon different cultures and different islands and countries . from  Yahoos to the Houyhnhnms , from the Brobdingnagians to the Lilliputians . He liked all his journeys and he experienced them by his own well .

 

Gulliver never tried to save himself by his wit or actions and in this way he is different from other stories that the characters try hard to skip their situations . Also , in Gulliver's travel there are a large number of characters because of all the different places he went through .this novel is a super fiction that can never happened.

 

The story of Gulliver's travels isn't actually a normal travelling story . it is a political satire in the form of an adventure novel. The writer was criticizing his society through the novel .

 

In the other hand . Robinson Crusoe is a story of a man who's ship crushed and he was left in an isolated land . he was religious man who believed that he will be found . he done everything possible to survive .

 

the character's in this story are countable because the novel focused on Robinson himself . Friday and the cannibals were the second characters.

 

 Also, The events were believable because The novel was based on a true story that happened in the past but the name of the character wasn't Robinson .

 

Finally, these are the general differences that I  came to  find in the both novels. Hopefully I am right because I've done my best to make it as  clear as possible.
