Desert Islands

(1930)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Desert Islands opens with a captivating essay on the romance of islands and castaways in literature and life. The essay leads on to over two hundred pages of what de la Mare himself calls "a rambling commentary" - a commonplace book on every conceivable aspect of this teeming subject, culled from a lifetime's reading on wrecks, pirates, utopias, and of course Daniel Defoe.
