1 The action


A robinsonade is about one person/ or people who end up on a deserted island. It can happen because of a flight accident or falling overboard from a ship.


You hear about how they manage/ survive and how they are rescued. Usually it is only one person, sometimes two but never a group of people and they have to live of what is on the island – the fruit, plants and animals.

 
Often something scary or dangerous happens while they are on the island. Attack from animals, a broken toe/finger or what is worse, an infected wound, pirates living on the other side of the island.

2 Genre


A robinsonade is often written like a novel or a diary.


A novel is a story where many things can happen. It can be written from many different points of views.


A diary is written by an I-author and is very personal. The author writes about his/her thoughts and emotions in details. A diary can only be written from the author’s point of view.
