  • Description or summary of the book: a Casement violently opened just over my Head, and a Woman gave three frightful Skreetches, and then cry'd, Oh! Death, Death, Death!'Purporting to be an eye-witness account, the Journal of the Plague Year is a record of the devastation wrought by the Great Plague of 1665 on the city of London. Defoe's fictional narrator, known only as 'H. F.', recounts in vivid detail the progress of the disease and the desperate attempts to contain it. He catalogues the rising death toll and the transformation of the city as its citizens flee and those who remain live in fear and despair. Above all it is the stories of appallinghuman suffering and grief that give Defoe's extraordinary fiction its compelling historical veracity.This revised edition includes comprehensive notes, a complete topographical index, and a new introduction to the greatest work of plague literature.
