Daniel Defoe – A Journal of the Plague Year

 

I had to read Daniel Defoe’s early example of realistic storytelling as part of my London in Literature course at university – many people think his tale of the black death is a journalistic report of the facts, but it really is a piece of fiction no matter how closely it might resemble the truth.

Sure, the language is a little heavy in parts and it’s only really worth reading if you have a deep interest in the plague, but it’s pretty good considering its age.
