Overview

Daniel Defoe was an innovative writer whose prose works in the early eighteenth century helped to revolutionize the novel as a literary form.  Steeped in satire and full of trenchant social and political criticism, Defoe’s novels open a fascinating window onto the time and place where they were written, even as they abound with entertainment for the modern reader.

This literary omnibus features five of Defoe’s best-known works, among them his masterpiece, Robinson Crusoe and its sequel, The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe.  Included as well are Captain Singleton, Moll Flanders, and the historical novel A Journal of the Plague Year, all of which continue to influence the way we read and write fiction today.
