Comment Robinson Crusoé est entré au collège: carrières littéraires et fabrique d'un classique au XVIIIe siècle

Abstract : Published in 1719 as an authentical travel account, Robinson Crusoé became in the early nineteenth century a classic of children’s literature. Through the editorial story of the novel and the adaptations that occurred in the second half of the eighteenth century, this article would like to examine the process by which a book became a classic, from an extreme case, that of a contemporary novel. This is to show how the narrative, iconographic and material choices made by the authors and their publishers crossed the social trajectories of the autors and the contemporary debates on production for youth and language teaching.
