Example text

At all adventures, and that with not a mast standing ’ 11 reads like the striking reversal o f Rucellai’s coat o f arms. As for Robinson’s financial success, its modernity is at least as questionable: though the magic paraphernalia o f the story o f Fortunatus (who had been his main predecessor in the pantheon o f modern self-made men) are gone from the novel, the way in which Robinson’s wealth piles up in his absence and is later returned— ‘an old pouch’ filled with ‘one hundred and sixty Portugal moidores in gold’, followed by ‘seven fine leop­ ards’ skins .
