For a project I am working on, I want to isolate the moment in Robinson Crusoe where he discovers the savage footprint, imprinted in the sand
, for the first time.
In the book this footprint is discovered quite a few years before Friday arrives. It signifies the first time Crusoe realises that there are 'others' visiting his Kingdom.
It has been critically engaged with by the likes of Umberto Eco
, Susan Stewart (two times
) and Simon O'Sullivan
. Do you know of any other writings?
How has film dealt with this moment? Before I read the book, I wrongly assumed that the discovered footprint was Friday's. Do any film adaptations treat it this way?
