The only one of Defoe's novels that does not end with the triumph of its protagonist, Roxana is nevertheless a triumphant work of art. It is of enormous historical and social interest, highlighting as it does the complex relationship that existed in Defoe's time between public respectability and private corruption.

What a great read! Roxana was recommended to me by a friend. One of Defoe's last writings- he truly hits home with this one. A compelling rags to riches story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
