如今，人们依然喜爱着Daniel Defoe的经典故事Robinson Crusoe，哪怕这已经是三百年前的故事。你是否知道这个传奇小说的开场白呢？
I was born in the Year 1632, in the City of York, of a good Family, tho' not of that Country, my Father being a Foreigner of Bremen, who settled first at Hull; He got a good Estate by Merchandise, and leaving off his Trade, lived afterward at York, from whence he had married my Mother, whose Relations were named Robinson, a very good Family in that Country, and from whom I was called Robinson Kreutznaer; but by the usual Corruption of Words in England, we are now called, nay we call our selves, and write our Name Crusoe, and so my Companions always call'd me.
Crusoe's the name, and Island life is my game.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum, I smell the blood of an Englishman.
One can imagine, but will never really know, the stench of sea and sweat that lay upon this solitary man.
