A Journal of the Plague Year, written by a citizen who continued all the while in London

Book cover
A Journal of the Plague Year is a novel by Daniel Defoe, an outstanding English writer, the author of legendary Robinson Crusoe, who hardly needs to be introduced.
“A Journal of the Plague Year” is a historical novel, peculiar observations of the most remarkable incidents and episodes of London life, during the Great Plague that struck the city in 1665. The story is told with such an air of celebrity, that the reader, if being unaware of the authorship, believes it to be an authentic journal by someone who actually experienced all that is described here. Every little detail is outlined so accurately, artlessly and vividly, that sometimes we can not avoid this illusive impression. The book will transport you to the nightmare atmosphere of the stricken capital, to its ins and outs, full of horror and suffering of the plague victims.
