A Journal of the Plague Year

A Journal of the Plague Year
by Daniel Defoe

Publisher: Pennsylvania State University 2000
ISBN/ASIN: 1604241152
Number of pages: 229

Defoe's account of the bubonic plague that swept London in 1665 remains as vivid as it is harrowing. Based on Defoe's own childhood memories and prodigious research, A Journal of the Plague Year walks the line between fiction, history, and reportage. In meticulous and unsentimental detail it renders the daily life of a city under siege.
