Defoe's classic reconstruction of the Great Plague of 1665 is the most compelling account of natural disaster in all literature. Narrated by an imaginary 'Citizen who continued all the while in London', A Journal of the Plague Year (1722) scans the streets and alleyways of the stricken capital in its effort to record the appalling suffering of plague victims. At once horrifying and movingly compassionate, it is a nightmare vision of the modern city laid to waste. Louis Landa's Oxford English Novels text and notes are here reissued with an Introduction by David Roberts which sheds fresh light on the relationship of the Journal to Pepys's diary, and a new medical note based on the latest epidemiological research.
