In the hard oyster shell of Crusoe's character some sort of religious feeling is gradually secreted as a result of the constant fretting of circumstance on his consciousness. In recent years several critics have suggested that we ought to take Crusoe's religious utterances more seriously than it has been customary to take them; and it has been claimed that his account of the various stages in his religious development—from original sin to spiritual hardening and then, at last, through physical and mental suffering to a gradual repentance and ultimate conversion—follows closely the traditional pattern of I smil'd to my self at the Sight of this Money.
