Crusoe's Wife Character Analysis

After returning to England from Lisbon, Robinson settles down, marries, and has children. His wife is a feature of the comfortable family life he has in England after his long, troublesome travels. However, once she dies, he goes to sea again. The brevity with which Robinson's wife and her death are described (she is not even named!) shows how narcissistic Robinson's narration can be—he is focused only on telling the reader about his own adventures.
