This novel began with Crusoe telling us how much of a desire he had for sailing and how he gave into going sailing with his companion to London. His yearn for sailing also suggests how much he wanted to get away from England. It is obvious to see his feelings for England were not very strong nor was his family relationship. The lack of names in his family showed us he did not want us to become familiar with them and therefore showed he did not have a strong relationship with them. This first journey made way for more to come, one including Crusoe becoming a slave and another involving a Portuguese captain who willingly took him to Brazil.

Young Crusoe would not fall victim to this conformity that his parents desired for him. He was determined to not stick around home and work for the rest of his existence. Crusoe wanted to sail and that did not change even after his first few sailing mishaps. The work ethic Defoe brought to our attention seems to consume Crusoe later in the story, only after he refrains from sailing for a while and tries to settle. During his time in the Brasils, on his plantation, he is devoted to doing well for himself, but his adventuresome spirit soon returns and he wants to set sail again.
After this, Crusoe's friend decides to stop traveling by sea, but Robinson is persistent on sailing and decides to go on another ship to London which ends up being better, and leaves his money with a kind widow to go on another trip.

From the beginning, Piggy viewed everything logically. He quickly came to the realization that the boys may be on the island for a long time, when he told Ralph "Nobody don't know we're here. Your dad don't know, nobody don't know" (9), contrary to Ralph's assumption that his father, who happened to be a naval officer, would simply come and rescue them. While Ralph became the natural leader based on his charisma, "what intelligence had been shown was traceable to Piggy" (18/19). However, it is unfortunate that this intelligence eventually led Piggy to his demise.
