Defoe Daniel A Journal of the Plague Year and The Storm


Daniel Defoe was an English trader, writer, pamphleteer and journalist. He is most famous for his novel "Robinson Crusoe", which is second only to the Bible in its number of translations.

The Storm is an account of the great storm in 1703, when a hurricane from the north Atlantic hammered into Britain: it remains the worst storm the nation has ever experienced.
