The protagonist in Daniel Defoe's The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe belonged to the middle class. What was the effect of portraying him as a youth belonging to a middle-class family (rather than an upper-class family)? It appealed to a broader readership, especially in the middle class. It generated much excitement among middle- and lower-class youth. It made upper-class readers aware of the differences within the middle class. It drew severe criticism from upper-class writers of the time.
