A Journal Of the Plague Year

By Defoe, Daniel

A Journal of the Plague Year is a novel by Daniel Defoe, first published in March 1722. 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. Although it purports to have been written several years after the event, it actually was written in the years just prior to the book's first publication in March 1722.
