In Foe Susan Barton is set adrift in a rowboat after a mutiny on a ship sailing from South America to Lisbon She lands on an island where Cruso and Friday had been cast away years ago In Coetzee's retelling of the Robinson Crusoe tale Cruso is content with his simple life on the island Friday has been transformed from a Caribbean to a black African whose tongue had been cut out by slave owners The three castaways are rescued after Susan has spent one year on the island but Cruso dies on his way back to Europe Susan wants to write their story so she contacts the author Daniel Foe to turn her narration into a book But Foe wants to tell a different story about Susan than the one she thinks is important Susan is also disturbed about Friday's lack of a voice Although Friday has been liberated from slavery he cannot ever really be free with no voice The theme seems to be that the oppressed and disadvantaged have been silenced and lost the authorship of their own storiesJM Coetzee was writing in 1986 in South Africa where communication problems and cultural differences existed between the black Africans and white colonialists The original Crusoe story was a fictional autobiography and adventure story with 17th Century ideas about colonialism gender and slavery Coetzee has updated the tale by adding a woman narrator an African servant and a 20th Century outlook
