Daniel Defoe – An Introduction. Defoe is most well known for his classic novels Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders. Born around 1659 he was also a journalist, a pamphleteer, a businessman, a spy - and a writer of short stories. His life was long and colourful covering all manner of fields and usually closely followed by political intrigue or unpaid bills. But the breath of his works are still highly regarded indeed his Journal Of A Plague Year is an important account of that disastrous year for England. His novels of course are regularly used as the basis of films and TV shows as well lauded for their contribution to the birth of novels as an art form. In these short stories Defoe succinctly emblazons his style upon subjects as diverse as apparitions, pirates and politics. This volume is brought to your ears by Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.
