About the Author

Daniel Defoe was born Daniel Foe in London, England on September 13, 1660. He changed his surname in 1703, adding the more genteel "De" before his own name to suggest a higher social standing. He was a novelist, journalist, and political agent. His writings covered a wide range of topics. His mostrar mais novels include Robinson Crusoe, Moll Flanders, Roxana, Captain Singleton, and Colonel Jack. He wrote A Tour Thro' the Whole Island of Great Britain, which is an important source of English economic life, and ghost stories including A True Relation of the Apparition of One Mrs. Veal. He also wrote satirical poems and pamphlets and edited a newspaper. He was imprisoned and pilloried for his controversial work, The Shortest Way with the Dissenters, which suggested that all non-Conformist ministers be hanged. He died on April 24, 1731.

A Journal of The Plague Year em Folio Society Devotees (Outubro 2022)

Resenhas

This is an excellent little book. In touching on the human condition, the fear of people in the Plague of 1665, one could not but think of the recent Covid Pandemic of 2019/2020 until 2021/2022. Here, though, Daniel Defoe writes of his being a Londoner staying in the capital through the time of the distemper, and tells of the attitudes of people and the fakery that abounded as people, particularly the poor, sought help as they, too, stayed put. Fake advice and fake remedies were many, swindlers having a hey-day until, of course, many of them died of the pestilence too. The Court moved away to Oxford and the wealthy were able to move to the countryside around London - the poor, though, had nowhere to go and died in their thousands - it is reckoned that over 68,000 died. This is but an extract from Defoe's "A Journal of the Plague Year" but it's an interesting taster - an excellent Penguin 60s Classic.… (mais)

Sure to offend those who insist on applying 21st century mores to a novel published in 1719, but for the rest of us it is a rip-roaring good adventure and an interesting glimpse into the 18th century worldview. Nice illustrations too.

This is a very dull, tedious book. It has some plot, but it is disorganized and not very compelling. Moll Flanders herself is flat and underdeveloped, and her many marriages and children seem to affect her very minimally, if at all, to a point that makes her seem unrealistic. While my copy of this book was under 300 pages long, it felt 4 times as long. If you have to read this book, take notes and pace yourself, and otherwise there are a lot of better classic novels to choose from.
