    When my Dad was at Middlebury College (Vermont) , he came upon this poem and set it to music. I memorized it, verses and melody. Now my sisters and children know it too. Delightful! (Report)Reply

    I learned this poem when I was about 8 years old and I thought of it recently (at age 84) and remembered parts of it. So glad to find it on the internet. I hope today's children are still learning poetry. It was more fun than anything else in school. (Report)Reply

    This is my all time favourite poem bar none. We have quoted him for many years and still delight in the whimsy. I am now using his narrative style when not doing limericks (Louise part 24) (Report)Reply

    Robinson Crusoe through the eyes of a happy soul! If this poet was in reality shipwrecked, I suspect that this would be the kind of life he would live. Amusing and delightful write for children of all ages! (Report)Reply

    What a crock is this Suparna Koley. Carryl was bright and whimsical, something for which Koley does not allow.
    He had a good time writing a funny poem with nothing in it concerning hidden meanings. He was amusing his audience and did just exactly that. Koley, hush up. You are making a fool of yourself. Perhaps if you had said I think what he meant was... then that is your opinion and might be acceptable. But do not deign to state facts of which you cannot be sure.

    To the fact...scholars-he meant the development he had was progressing his knowledge gradually through the hardships and innovative way to overcome it.He has become one of the most important scholars in the island where he was exiled and found out the ways to protect him. I t was his wisdom, the knowledge and the urge to explore more for the crisis moments. But he mentioned all the scholars, that means he wanted to mean those ACCOMPANY proved their intellegence and its practise instead of their blunt animality. They became expert of self development with different skill and activities.

    are correct about their collars-here he wanted to mean the behavior and intelligence are gradually rectified by themselves with a method of try and error.As Crusoe was very close to the animals accompanied him in the island, the collars being the behaviours and module of works were being changed by the situation and conditioned thrusted upon them.Their collars meant the behaviours of animals mentioned in the previous stanza were being unveiled to him.

    and particular turning out their toes- meant The way they wanted to prove his work . He pointed out the activities of scholars and their tool to share time and experience a midst the strong tide of lonely island where each and every corner was unknown to them.. Robinson Crusoe tried to know particular their worthiness of knowledge.
