Defoe D. A Journal of the Plague Year and The Storm

Daniel Defoe A Journal of the Plague Year


Written by Daniel Defoe nearly sixty years after the bubonic plague of 1665 swept through London, “A Journal of the Plague Year”, published in 1722, is an historically accurate account of one man’s experiences during a year of the Great Plague. In astonishing detail, Defoe takes readers through a vivid and horrific tour of the neighborhoods, houses, and streets that have drastically changed as the city is ravaged by the plague. The bustle of business and errands gives way to doors marked with the cross to signify a house of death, as well as the dead-carts transporting those destined for the mass graves, as the number of victims rises to nearly 100,000. As the epidemic progresses and the narrator encounters more stories of isolation and horror, Defoe reveals his masterful balance as both a historical and imaginative writer. He is able to convey both the massive scale of the tragedy and the deeply personal stories of the victims and survivors. Believed to have been based on the journals of his uncle Henry Foe, Defoe’s classic is widely regarded as one of the most accurate and detailed accounts of the Great Plague and its toll on London’s citizens. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Daniel Defoe A Journal of the Plague Year


This novel is a fictionalized account of one man's experiences of the year 1665, in which the Great Plague struck the city of London. Although it purports to have been written only a few years after the event, it actually was written in the years just prior to the book's first publication in March 1722. Defoe was only five years old in 1665, and the book itself was published under the initials 'H. F.' The novel probably was based on the journals of Defoe's uncle, Henry Foe.

Daniel Defoe A Journal of the Plague Year


The haunting cry of «Bring out your dead!» by a bell-ringing collector of 17th-century plague victims has filled readers across the centuries with cold terror. The chilling cry survives in historical consciousness largely as a result of this classic 1722 account of the epidemic of bubonic plague — known as the Black Death — that ravaged England in 1664–1665.Actually written nearly 60 years later by Daniel Defoe, the Journal is narrated by a Londoner named «H. F.,» who allegedly lived through the devastating effects of the pestilence and produced this eye witness account. Drawing on his considerable talents as both journalist and novelist, Defoe reconstructed events both historically and fictionally, incorporating realistic, memorable details that enable the novel to surpass even firsthand accounts in its air of authenticity. This verisimilitude is all the more remarkable since Defoe was only five years old when the actual events took place. Long a staple of college literature courses, A Journal of the Plague Year will fascinate students, teachers, and general readers alike.

Defoe Daniel A Journal of the Plague Year - The Original Classic Edition


Probably one of the first examples of journalistic fiction, Defoes A Journal of the Plague Year is a pseudo-eyewitness account of the London plague of 1665. Writing this in 1722, Defoe casts himself into the role of his uncle whom he calls H.F. and who recounts the events in grisly detail but with magnanimous compassion. Aside from the prose, the book has a surprisingly modern edge in the way it combines facts about a sensationally dire historical event with human interest stories for personal appeal. It seems so factual that at times its easy to forget that its just a fictitious account of a real event. <p> The plague (H.F. writes) arrives by way of carriers from the European mainland and spreads quickly through the unsanitary, crowded city despite official preventive measures; the symptoms being black bruises, or tokens, on the victims bodies, resulting in fever, delirium, and usually death in a matter of days. The public effects of the plague are readily imaginable: dead-carts, mass burial pits, the stench of corpses not yet collected, enforced quarantines, efforts to escape to the countryside, paranoia and superstitions, quacks selling fake cures, etc. Through all these observations, H.F. remains a calm voice of reason in a city overtaken by panic and bedlam. By the time the plague has passed, purged partly by its own self-limiting behavior and partly by the Great Fire of the following year, the (notoriously inaccurate) Bills of Mortality indicate the total death toll to be about 68,000, but the actual number is probably more like 100,000 – about a fifth of Londons population. <p> Like Defoes famous survivalist sketch Robinson Crusoe, the books palpable moralism is adequately camouflaged by the conviction of its narrative and the humanity of its narrator, a man who, like Crusoe, trusts Gods providence to lead him through the hardships, come what may. What I like about this Journal is that its theme is more relevant than its narrow, dated subject matter suggests: levelheadedness in the face of catastrophe and the emergence of a stronger and wiser society.

Daniel Defoe Daniel Defoe: Political Works


The creator of Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Defoe was quite politically active and that activism even resulted with his arrest, placement in a pillory and imprisoning. This collection represents his political activism and mirrors the true political climate in 18 th century England. His most successful poem, The True-Born Englishman is a political satire that defends the king against the perceived xenophobia of his enemies, satirizing the English claim to racial purity. Defoe's notable publication, An Essay upon Projects, is a series of proposals for social and economic improvement. The Complete English Tradesman is an example of Defoe's political works. He discusses the role of the tradesman in England in comparison to tradesmen internationally, arguing that the British system of trade is far superior. The work that finally got him arrested was a pamphlet The Shortest-Way with the Dissenters, which ruthlessly satirized the High church Tories and the Dissenters. Besides these, Defoe published a great number of political essays, pamphlets and tracts. The True-Born Englishman An Essay upon Projects The Complete English Tradesman Everybody's Business Is Nobody's Business Second Thoughts are Best The Shortest Way with the Dissenters And What if the Pretender Should Come? An Answer to a Question that Nobody Thinks of A Humble Proposal to the People of England Reasons against the Succession of the House of Hanover A Seasonable Warning and Caution against the Insinuations of Papists and Jacobites in Favour of the Pretender Daniel Defoe (1660 – 1731), was an English writer, journalist, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, and he is considered one of the founders of the English novel.

Даниэль Дефо The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe


"The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe is a novel by Daniel Defoe, first published on 25 April 1719. The first edition credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. Epistolary, confessional, and didactic in form, the book is presented as an autobiography of the title character (whose birth name is Robinson Kreutznaer)—a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical desert island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers, before ultimately being rescued. The story has been thought to be based on the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on a Pacific island called «„Más a Tierra“», now part of Chile, which was renamed Robinson Crusoe Island in 1966. Despite its simple narrative style, Robinson Crusoe was well received in the literary world and is often credited as marking the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre. It is generally seen as a contender for the first English novel. Before the end of 1719, the book had already run through four editions, and it has gone on to become one of the most widely published books in history, spawning so many imitations, not only in literature but also in film, television and radio, that its name is used to define a genre, the Robinsonade. Famous works of the author Daniel Defoe: Robinson Crusoe, Captain Singleton, Memoirs of a Cavalier, A Journal of the Plague Year, Colonel Jack, Moll Flanders, Roxana: The Fortunate Mistress. "
