A Journal of the Plague Year was written by Defoe in 1722. This book, which went to great lengths to seem as realistic and lifelike as possible, is the account of one man’s stories during the year 1665 when the Plague struck London and ravaged the city.

In this book, we read the withstander’s accounts of one man that lived through the plague in London. This man, who identifies himself as “H.F.”, might have been based on the author’s uncle, and the stories might be based on real ones. As he wanders the streets of London, he meets the horrifying, devastating panorama of human tragedy: empty streets, sick people abandoned to their luck, crosses on the doors, and people that refuse to talk. Those that talk all have a horrifying, tragic story that begs to be heard. Read about how the plague affected London on a human scale. This book is a masterful, heartwrenching recall of that deadly event.
