The Project Gutenberg EBook of , by Daniel DefoeDefoe’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, walks the line between fiction, history, and reportage. In meticulous and unsentimental detail it renders the daily life of a city under siege; the often gruesome medical precautions and practices of the time; the mass panics of a frightened citizenry; and the solitary travails of Defoe’s narrator, a man who decides to remain in the city through it all, chronicling the course of events with an unwavering eye. Defoe’s Journal remains perhaps the greatest account of a natural disaster ever written.The novel is a fictionalised account of one man’s experiences of the year 1665, in which the Great Plague struck the city of London. The book is told roughly chronologically, though without sections or chapter headings.
