Description

Defoe's reconstruction of the Great Plague of 1665 is literature's most compelling account of a natural disaster. An imaginary citizen of London wanders the stricken capital recording the appalling suffering of plague victims. The account is horrifying, yet movingly compassionate. The new introduction sheds fresh light on the relationship of "The Journal" to Pepys's diary, and a new medical note based on epidemiological research.show more
