About this ebook

Defoe’s gripping fictionalized account of the plague that racked seventeenth-century London

The year is 1665 and the plague has come to London. The air is heavy with death, the body count is rising, and the death carts are filling quickly. Our unflinching eyewitness narrator, HF, recounts the gruesome realities of life in a city overrun by the Black Death. Terror and hysteria seize the city as disease runs rampant.

Blending fiction with journalism, Defoe re-creates the plague in all its horrifying detail. First published in 1722, A Journal of the Plague Year is one of the most chilling accounts of the plague ever written.

Amazing. They new around the 1600s how to increase the survival rate by separating the sick and we nowadays have trouble with that.
