Someone got here today by googling 'Compare Robinson Crusoe Portrait Artist Young Man'. What an interesting, if mind-boggling, idea. I fear the google route may have taken our intrepid researcher far from the point, but there are some interesting morsels strewn along the roadside, such as this marvellously pithy review of Defoe's classic. Both books also appear in this list of the 100 best first lines. I would certainly add my own current favourite: "Marley was dead, to begin with."
