A Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe Summary

First published in 1722, this unabridged edition of Daniel Defoe's A Journal of the Plague Year covers events in London, England, in 1665 as the bubonic plague spread throughout the city. Though a work of historical fiction, the book includes accurate historical details, charts, statistics, and government documents. Defoe's narrator follows the spread of the plague and relates how powerful families and government officials tried to hide the disease to avoid inconvenience and public panic. But as deaths mounted and fear spread, those who could began to flee the city. A Journal of the Plague Year continues to resonate with modern audiences through its parallels to issues caused by modern diseases and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Plague Year by Lawrence Wright Summary

From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Looming Tower, and the pandemic novel The End of October: an unprecedented, momentous account of Covid-19—its origins, its wide-ranging repercussions, and the ongoing global fight to contain it "A book of panoramic breadth ... managing to surprise us about even those episodes we … thought we knew well … [With] lively exchanges about spike proteins and nonpharmaceutical interventions and disease waves, Wright’s storytelling dexterity makes all this come alive.” —The New York Times Book Review From the fateful first moments of the outbreak in China to the storming of the U.S. Capitol to the extraordinary vaccine rollout, Lawrence Wright’s The Plague Year tells the story of Covid-19 in authoritative, galvanizing detail and with the full drama of events on both a global and intimate scale, illuminating the medical, economic, political, and social ramifications of the pandemic. Wright takes us inside the CDC, where a first round of faulty test kits lost America precious time . . . inside the halls of the White House, where Deputy National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger’s early alarm about the virus was met with confounding and drastically costly skepticism . . . into a Covid ward in a Charlottesville hospital, with an idealistic young woman doctor from the town of Little Africa, South Carolina . . . into the precincts of prediction specialists at Goldman Sachs . . . into Broadway’s darkened theaters and Austin’s struggling music venues . . . inside the human body, diving deep into the science of how the virus and vaccines function—with an eye-opening detour into the history of vaccination and of the modern anti-vaccination movement. And in this full accounting, Wright makes clear that the medical professionals around the country who’ve risked their lives to fight the virus reveal and embody an America in all its vulnerability, courage, and potential. In turns steely-eyed, sympathetic, infuriated, unexpectedly comical, and always precise, Lawrence Wright is a formidable guide, slicing through the dense fog of misinformation to give us a 360-degree portrait of the catastrophe we thought we knew.

Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks Summary

“Plague stories remind us that we cannot manage without community . . . Year of Wonders is a testament to that very notion.” – The Washington Post An unforgettable tale, set in 17th century England, of a village that quarantines itself to arrest the spread of the plague, from the author The Secret Chord and of March, winner of the Pulitzer Prize When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna's eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love. As she struggles to survive and grow, a year of catastrophe becomes instead annus mirabilis, a "year of wonders." Inspired by the true story of Eyam, a village in the rugged hill country of England, Year of Wonders is a richly detailed evocation of a singular moment in history. Written with stunning emotional intelligence and introducing "an inspiring heroine" (The Wall Street Journal), Brooks blends love and learning, loss and renewal into a spellbinding and unforgettable read.

A Sentimental Journey and Other Writings by Laurence Sterne Summary

'Love is nothing without feeling. And feeling is still less without love.' Celebrated in its own day as the progenitor of 'a school of sentimental writers', A Sentimental Journey (1768) has outlasted its many imitators because of the humour and mischievous eroticism that inform Mr Yorick's travels. Setting out to journey to France and Italy he gets little further than Lyons but finds much to appreciate, in contrast to contemporary travel writers whom Sterne satirizes in the figures of Smelfungus and Mundungus. A master of ambiguity and double entendre, Sterne is nevertheless as concerned as his peers with exploring the nature of virtue; unlike other writers of sentimental fiction Sterne insists on the inseparability of desire and feeling. This new edition includes a selection from The Sermons of Mr Yorick, which shed light on the concerns of the Journey, The Journal to Eliza, which records Sterne's feelings as he languishes for the company of Eliza Draper, and A Political Romance, the satire on a local ecclesiastical squabble that was the catalyst for Sterne's literary career. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Memoirs of a Cavalier by Daniel Defoe Summary

"Memoirs of a Cavalier" is a literary sleight of hand. Written in the style of an eyewitness account, it’s actually a work of fiction—a trick Defoe would repeat in his later book "A Journal of a Plague Year". Originally published anonymously, many readers of the time were fooled into thinking it was real. The book’s unnamed protagonist is an English gentleman with a lust for adventure. He details his experiences on battlefields across Europe, as a soldier in both the Thirty Years' War and the English Civil War. With its vivid scenes of warfare, "Memoirs of a Cavalier" truly makes history come alive. English writer Daniel Defoe (c. 1660–1731) led an extraordinary life. As a child, he survived both the Great Fire of London and a major outbreak of the bubonic plague. As an adult, he enjoyed careers as a merchant, political satirist, rebel soldier and even a spy. Defoe was in his fifties before he finally turned his hand to fiction. "Robinson Crusoe", his first novel, was an instant bestseller. The story of a shipwrecked sailor, its style and structure made it a landmark text in the history of English literature. His other notable works include "Moll Flanders", "A Journal of the Plague Year" and "Captain Singleton".

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas Summary

"We read The Three Musketeers to experience a sense of romance and for the sheer excitement of the story," reflected Clifton Fadiman. "In these violent pages all is action, intrigue, suspense, surprise--an almost endless chain of duels, murders, love affairs, unmaskings, ambushes, hairbreadth escapes, wild rides. It is all impossible and it is all magnificent." First published in 1844, Alexandre Dumas's swashbuckling epic chronicles the adventures of D'Artagnan, a gallant young nobleman who journeys to Paris in 1625 hoping to join the ranks of musketeers guarding Louis XIII. He soon finds himself fighting alongside three heroic comrades--Athos, Porthos, and Aramis--who seek to uphold the honor of the king by foiling the wicked plots of Cardinal Richelieu and the beautiful spy "Milady." "Dumas will be read a hundred, nay, three hundred years on," wrote John Galsworthy. "His greatest creation is undoubtedly D'Artagnan, type at once of the fighting adventurer and of the trusty servant, whose wily blade is ever at the back of those whose hearts have neither his magnanimity nor his courage. Few, if any, characters in fiction inspire one with such belief in their individual existences. . . . To one who made D'Artagnan all shall be forgiven." Clifton Fadiman agreed: "Dumas enjoyed writing his stories. . . . The pleasure he must have felt in creating D'Artagnan's troubles and triumphs flashes out of these pages. . . . Dumas rampaged through the history of France, inventing, changing, distorting--doing whatever was needed to produce a tale to hold the reader breathless."

Inferno by Steven Hatch, M.D. Summary

"Hatch packs a wealth of knowledge into the book...poignant." -Associated Press Dr. Steven Hatch, an infectious disease specialist, first came to Liberia in November 2013 to work at a hospital in Monrovia. Six months later, several of the physicians he had served with were dead or unable to work, and Ebola had become a world health emergency. Inferno is his account of the epidemic that nearly consumed a nation, as well as its deeper origins. Hatch returned with the aid organization International Medical Corps to help establish an Ebola Treatment Unit. Alongside a devoted staff of expats and Liberians in a hastily constructed facility nestled into the jungle, Hatch witnessed the unit's physicians, nurses, other caregivers, and patients selflessly helping others, preserving hope in the face of fear, and maintaining dignity across the divide of health and illness. And, over repeated visits during the course of the outbreak, Hatch came to understand the Ebola catastrophe not only as a contagious virus but as a product of Liberia's violent history and America's role in it. Powerful and clear-eyed, Inferno not only explores a deadly virus and an afflicted country, but also reveals how the Ebola outbreak stoked nativist anxieties that were exploited for political gain in the United States and around the world. In telling one doctor's story, Inferno demonstrates how generations of inequality left Liberia vulnerable to crisis, and how similar circumstances might fuel another plague elsewhere. By understanding and alleviating those circumstances, Hatch writes, we may help smother the fire next time.

A Plague Year by Edward Bloor Summary

It's 2001 and zombies have taken over Tom's town. Meth zombies. The drug rips through Blackwater, PA, with a ferocity and a velocity that overwhelms everyone. It starts small, with petty thefts of cleaning supplies and Sudafed from the supermarket where Tom works. But by year's end there will be ruined, hollow people on every street corner. Meth will unmake the lives of friends and teachers and parents. It will fill the prisons, and the morgues. Tom's always been focused on getting out of his depressing coal mining town, on planning his escape to a college somewhere sunny and far away. But as bits of his childhood erode around him, he finds it's not so easy to let go. With the selfless heroism of the passengers on United Flight 93 that crashed nearby fresh in his mind and in his heart, Tom begins to see some reasons to stay, to see that even lost causes can be worth fighting for. Edward Bloor has created a searing portrait of a place and a family and a boy who survive a harrowing plague year, and become stronger than before.

Irreversible Damage by Abigail Shrier Summary

NAMED A BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2021 BY THE TIMES AND THE SUNDAY TIMES "Irreversible Damage . . . has caused a storm. Abigail Shrier, a Wall Street Journal writer, does something simple yet devastating: she rigorously lays out the facts." —Janice Turner, The Times of London Until just a few years ago, gender dysphoria—severe discomfort in one’s biological sex—was vanishingly rare. It was typically found in less than .01 percent of the population, emerged in early childhood, and afflicted males almost exclusively. But today whole groups of female friends in colleges, high schools, and even middle schools across the country are coming out as “transgender.” These are girls who had never experienced any discomfort in their biological sex until they heard a coming-out story from a speaker at a school assembly or discovered the internet community of trans “influencers.” Unsuspecting parents are awakening to find their daughters in thrall to hip trans YouTube stars and “gender-affirming” educators and therapists who push life-changing interventions on young girls—including medically unnecessary double mastectomies and puberty blockers that can cause permanent infertility. Abigail Shrier, a writer for the Wall Street Journal, has dug deep into the trans epidemic, talking to the girls, their agonized parents, and the counselors and doctors who enable gender transitions, as well as to “detransitioners”—young women who bitterly regret what they have done to themselves. Coming out as transgender immediately boosts these girls’ social status, Shrier finds, but once they take the first steps of transition, it is not easy to walk back. She offers urgently needed advice about how parents can protect their daughters. A generation of girls is at risk. Abigail Shrier’s essential book will help you understand what the trans craze is and how you can inoculate your child against it—or how to retrieve her from this dangerous path.

Plague Journal by Michael O'Brien Summary

Plague Journal is Michael O'Brien's fourth novel in the Children of the Last Days series. The central character is Nathaniel Delaney, the editor of a small-town newspaper, who is about to face the greatest crisis of his life. As the novel begins, ominous events are taking place throughout North America, but little of it surfaces before the public eye. Set in the not-too-distant future, the story describes a nation that is quietly shifting from a democratic form of government to a form of totalitarianism. Delaney is one of the few voices left in the media who is willing to speak the whole truth about what is happening, and as a result the full force of the government is brought against him. Thus, seeking to protect his children and to salvage what remains of his life, he makes a choice that will alter the future of each member of his family and many other people. As the story progresses he keeps a journal of observations, recording the day-by-day escalation of events, and analyzing the motives of his political opponents with sometimes scathing frankness. More importantly, he begins to keep a "mental record" that develops into a painful process of self-examination. As his world falls apart, he is compelled to see in greater depth the significance of his own assumptions and compromises, his successes and failures. Plague Journal chronicles the struggle of a thoroughly modern man put to the ultimate spiritual and psychological test, a man who in losing himself finds himself.

In the Wake of the Plague by Norman F. Cantor Summary

Much of what we know about the greatest medical disaster ever, the Black Plague of the fourteenth century, is wrong. The details of the Plague etched in the minds of terrified schoolchildren -- the hideous black welts, the high fever, and the final, awful end by respiratory failure -- are more or less accurate. But what the Plague really was, and how it made history, remain shrouded in a haze of myths. Norman Cantor, the premier historian of the Middle Ages, draws together the most recent scientific discoveries and groundbreaking historical research to pierce the mist and tell the story of the Black Death afresh, as a gripping, intimate narrative. In the Wake of the Plague presents a microcosmic view of the Plague in England (and on the continent), telling the stories of the men and women of the fourteenth century, from peasant to priest, and from merchant to king. Cantor introduces a fascinating cast of characters. We meet, among others, fifteen-year-old Princess Joan of England, on her way to Spain to marry a Castilian prince; Thomas of Birmingham, abbot of Halesowen, responsible for his abbey as a CEO is for his business in a desperate time; and the once-prominent landowner John le Strange, who sees the Black Death tear away his family's lands and then its very name as it washes, unchecked, over Europe in wave after wave. Cantor argues that despite the devastation that made the Plague so terrifying, the disease that killed more than 40 percent of Europe's population had some beneficial results. The often literal demise of the old order meant that new, more scientific thinking increasingly prevailed where church dogma had once reigned supreme. In effect, the Black Death heralded an intellectual revolution. There was also an explosion of art: tapestries became popular as window protection against the supposedly airborne virus, and a great number of painters responded to the Plague. Finally, the Black Death marked an economic sea change: the onset of what Cantor refers to as turbocapitalism; the peasants who survived the Plague thrived, creating Europe's first class of independent farmers. Here are those stories and others, in a tale of triumph coming out of the darkest horror, wrapped up in a scientific mystery that persists, in part, to this day. Cantor's portrait of the Black Death's world is pro-vocative and captivating. Not since Barbara Tuchman's A Distant Mirror have medieval men and women been brought so vividly to life. The greatest popularizer of the Middle Ages has written the period's most fascinating narrative.

The Plague Cycle by Charles Kenny Summary

A vivid, sweeping, and “fact-filled” (Booklist, starred review) history of mankind’s battles with infectious disease that “contextualizes the COVID-19 pandemic” (Publishers Weekly)—for readers of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Yuval Harari’s Sapiens and John Barry’s The Great Influenza. For four thousand years, the size and vitality of cities, economies, and empires were heavily determined by infection. Striking humanity in waves, the cycle of plagues set the tempo of civilizational growth and decline, since common response to the threat was exclusion—quarantining the sick or keeping them out. But the unprecedented hygiene and medical revolutions of the past two centuries have allowed humanity to free itself from the hold of epidemic cycles—resulting in an urbanized, globalized, and unimaginably wealthy world. However, our development has lately become precarious. Climate and population fluctuations and factors such as global trade have left us more vulnerable than ever to newly emerging plagues. Greater global cooperation toward sustainable health is urgently required—such as the international efforts to manufacture and distribute a COVID-19 vaccine—with millions of lives and trillions of dollars at stake. “A timely, lucid look at the role of pandemics in history” (Kirkus Reviews), The Plague Cycle reveals the relationship between civilization, globalization, prosperity, and infectious disease over the past five millennia. It harnesses history, economics, and public health, and charts humanity’s remarkable progress, providing a fascinating and astute look at the cyclical nature of infectious disease.

Four people hold the fate of humanity in their hands...A sexual mercenary condemned to death as a foot soldier in the Army of the Living Dead; a scientist who's devoted his whole life to destroying the virus and now discovers he has only ten weeks to succeed; a God-fearing fundamentalist on his way to the presidency before he accepts a higher calling; and a young infected coed from Berkeley on a bizarre crusade to save the world with a new religion of carnal abandon. Each will discover that the only thing more dangerous than the Plague is the cure.

Journal of the Plague Year by Adrian Tchaikovsky,Malcolm Cross,CB Harvey Summary

WHEN THE WORLD ENDED... The Cull swept the world in the early years of the twenty-first century, killing billions and ending civilisation. Only a fortunate few, blessed with the right blood type, were spared. In the chaos of the Afterblight, scientists, priests?even armed robbers?may become leaders, or heroes. Three incredible writers, including the bestselling author of the Shadows of the Apt series Adrian Tchaikovsky, lead us into the apocalypse. In Malcolm Cross?s Orbital Decay, the team in the International Space Station watch helplessly as the world is all but wiped out. Exiled from Earth by his blood-type, astronaut Alvin Burrows must solve the mystery of the ?Pandora? experiment, even as someone on the station takes to murdering the crew one by one... In C. B. Harvey?s Dead Kelly, fugitive and convict ?Dead? Kelly McGuire returns from hiding out in the Bush to the lawless city of Melbourne. McGuire has three jobs to do: to be revenged on his old gangmates, to confront some uncomfortable truths about his past, and?ultimately?to discover his own terrible destiny... In Adrian Tchaikovsky?s The Bloody Deluge, Katy Lewkowitz and her friend and old tutor Dr. Emil Weber, fleeing the depredations of the so-called New Teutonic Order, take refuge among the strangely anachronistic survivors at the monastery of Jasna G½ra in Western Poland. A battle of faith ensues, that could decide the future of humankind...

Die Pest von London 1665 in Defoes "A Journal of the Plague Year". Ein Fallbeispiel frühneuzeitlicher Pestausbrüche und ihrer Auswirkungen by Dominik Kruczinski Summary

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2021 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Länder - Mittelalter, Frühe Neuzeit, Note: 2,0, Universität Duisburg-Essen (Historisches Institut), Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Tod und Gedenken in der Frühen Neuzeit, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Abhandlung wird sich der Pest in der Frühen Neuzeit widmen, genauer der großen Pest von London im Jahre 1665. Sie ist einer der fatalsten Ausbrüche der Pest in der frühneuzeitlichen Geschichte Europas und soll folgend als Fallbeispiel einer alltagsgeschichtlichen Analyse dienen. Um die Zustände dieser Zeit rekonstruieren zu können, wird sich der Schrift Daniel Defoes „A Journal of the Plague Year“ aus dem Jahre 1722 bedient. Dieses Werk als Quelle ermöglicht einen einmaligen Einblick in die Lebenswelt der Menschen zur Zeit der Pest 1665 in London und eröffnet einen möglichen Blickwinkel auf dieses Ereignis und seine Situation. Nachdem ein Überblick über die Geschichte der Pest in Europa gegeben und das Geschehen des Pestausbruchs in London 1665 in ihren historischen Kontext eingeordnet wurde, wird die Schrift Defoes genauer analysiert. Dies soll im Hinblick auf die Fragen geschehen, welche Konsequenzen der Pestausbruch auf die Stadt London und ihre Einwohner hatte, wie das öffentliche Leben dieser Zeit aussah und welche Maßnahmen auf individueller und institutioneller Ebene gegen die Seuche getroffen wurden. Die Herausarbeitung der Analyseergebnisse soll charakteristisch für einen Großteil der Pestausbrüche des frühneuzeitlichen Europas sein und verdeutlichen, in welcher Art und mit welchen Auswirkungen die Pest ständiger Begleiter der Frühen Neuzeit und ihrer Zeitgenossen war. Dem folgend wird der Stand der Forschung zur Aufarbeitung frühneuzeitlicher Pestausbrüche betrachtet und die Erkenntnisse dieser Abhandlung abschließend zusammengefasst.

The German Gothic Novel in Anglo-German Perspective by Patrick Bridgwater Summary

The first full-length study of the main German contributors to the Gothic canon, to each of whom a chapter is devoted, The German Gothic Novel in Anglo-German Perspective is an original historical and comparative study that goes well beyond the necessary review of the evidence to include much new material, many new insights and pieces of analysis, and some fundamental changes of perspective. The book aims to put the record straight in bibliographical and literary historical terms, and to act as a reference guide to facilitate future research, so that anyone working on the German Gothic novel or on Anglo-German interactions in the field of Gothic, will find there references to all the relevant secondary literature. The German Gothic Novel in Anglo-German Perspective is addressed to Germanists, but also to teachers and students of English, American and comparative literature, for there is at present hardly a ‘hotter’ subject than Gothic. The book’s emphasis on the Gothic work of canonical writers should prompt even conservative German Departments to reconsider their attitude to Gothic. Being addressed to scholars and students of German, German quotations are given in German, but English translations are added for the convenience of English and American scholars and students of Gothic, who represent another important section of the books’ target audience.

This book explores how the cultural process of making any disease a "plague" results in discrimination against certain groups, as it has for those with AIDS in America. Gina M. Bright here captures the discrimination produced by plague-making in her analysis and her portraits of the people she has cared for with AIDS over the past quarter-century.

Der Protagonist in Daniel Defoe’s 'A Journal of the Plague Year' und Providence by Iris Heuse Summary

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2, Universität Hamburg (Anglistik und Amerikanistik), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die puritanischen Glaubensvorstellungen spielen in Werken von Defoe eine große Rolle. Somit liegt es nahe seine Werke im Lichte dieser Vorstellungen zu betrachten. Was sagt aber nun die puritanische Lehre? Kurz gefasst, dass der Mensch von je her auserwählt ist, oder nicht, und er an diesem Zustand nichts ändern kann. Alles was ihm bleibt ist herauszufinden wie es um seine Erwähltheit bestellt ist. Dabei spielen Zufälle eine große Rolle, den sie gelten, zumindest indirekt, als Zeichen Gottes, und sagen somit etwas über den Status eines Menschen aus. Gerade in einer Extremsituation wie sie der Ausbruch der Pest in London darstellt, in dessen Mitte sich die zentrale Figur in Defoe’s „A yournal of a plague year“ befindet, bietet viele Situationen um nach Zeichen der Erwähltheit dieser Person zu suchen.

The Storm by Daniel Defoe Summary

On the evening of 26th November 1703, a cyclone from the north Atlantic hammered into southern Britain at over seventy miles an hour, claiming the lives of over 8,000 people. Eyewitnesses reported seeing cows left stranded in the branches of trees and windmills ablaze from the friction of their whirling sails. For Defoe, bankrupt and just released from prison for seditious writings, the storm struck during one of his bleakest moments. But it also furnished him with the material for his first book, and in his powerful depiction of private suffering and individual survival played out against a backdrop of public calamity we can trace the outlines of his later masterpieces such as A Journal of the Plague Year and Robinson Crusoe.

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe Summary

Edgar Allan Poe’s only long fiction has provoked intense scholarly discussions about its meaning since its first publication. The novel relates the adventures of Pym after he stows away on a whaling ship, where he endures starvation, encounters with cannibals, a whirlpool, and finally a journey to an Antarctic sea. It draws on the conventions of travel writing and science fiction, and on Poe’s own experiences at sea, but is ultimately in a category of its own. Appendices include virtually all of the contemporary sources of exploration and south polar navigation that Poe consulted and adapted to the narrative, together with reviews and notices of Pym and a sampling of responses to the novel from a wide array of authors, from Herman Melville to Jules Verne. Seven illustrations are also included.

The Last Man by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Summary

'The last man! I may well describe that solitary being's feelings, feeling myself as the last relic of a beloved race, my companions extinct before me.' Mary Shelley, Journal (May 1824). Best remembered as the author of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley wrote The Last Man eight years later, on returning to England from Italy after her husband's death. It is the twenty-first century, and England is a republic governed by a ruling elite, one of whom, Adrian, Earl of Windsor, has introduced a Cumbrian boy to the circle. This outsider, Lionel Verney, narrates the story, a tale of complicated, tragic love, and of the gradual extermination of the human race by plague. The Last Man also functions as an intriguing roman à clef, for the saintly Adrian is a monument to Percy Bysshe Shelley, and his friend Lord Raymond is a portrait of Byron. The novel offers a vision of the future that expresses a reaction against Romanticism, as Shelley demonstrates the failure of the imagination and of art to redeem her doomed characters. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

영어고전079 대니얼 디포의 전염병 연대기(English Classics079 A Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe) by 대니얼 디포(Daniel Defoe) Summary

전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year)(1722) : 판데믹(pandemic)이란 초유의 대재난을 겪고 있는 2021년이기에 삼백년 전 흑사병에 맞선 영국 런던의 상황을 그려낸 대니얼 디포의 전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year)(1722)는 우리의 현재를 돌이켜 볼 수 있는 중요한 작품이 아닐 수 없습니다. 영국 천문학자 마운더는 1650년~1700년경 태양의 상대 흑점수가 비정상적으로 감소한 것을 발견해 이를 마운더 극소기(Maunder Minimum)라 명명하였습니다. 이 시기 지구 전역에서 한파가 불어 닥쳤고, 이는 흉작을, 다시 기근을, 그리고 전염병이란 후폭풍으로 이어졌습니다. 지구 반대편의 영국 런던 대역병(Great Plague of London)(1665~1666)과 ‘조선 역사상 최악의 기근’ 경신 대기근(庚辛大飢饉)(1670~1671)이 비슷한 시기에 닥친 것은 결코 우연이 아닙니다. 돌이켜 보면 사스(SARS coronavirus, SARS-CoV)(2002~2003), , 서아프리카 에볼라(Ebola hemorrhagic fever; EHF)(2014), 중동호흡기증후군 메르스(Middle East Respiratory Syndrome; MERS)(2015) 등 전염병은 항상 우리 곁에 있었습니다. 그러나 각 국가의 정부의 지휘 체계, 시민들의 협조, 백신의 개발과 공급 등에는 상이한 차이가 있습니다. 전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year)(1722)는 소설의 형식을 빌리긴 하였으나, 1664년 흑사병이 도는 와중에도 런던이란 심장을 멈추지 않기 위해 고군분투하는 각계각층의 노력이 세밀하게 그려져 있는 ‘현장 르포’입니다. 페스트의 발발부터 시정부의 긴밀한 대처, 그리고 시민들의 절망과 분노가 시간 순서대로 묘사되어 마치 한편의 영화를 보는 것 같은 긴박감을 자아냅니다. 특히 부상자의 수를 비롯해 실제 사건이 진행된 공간을 꼼꼼히 취재하여 그 완성도를 높였다는 점에서 동시대 사무엘 페피스(Samuel Pepys)가 남긴 일기보다 한 차원 높은 기록물로 인정받고 있습니다. 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719)의 명성이 무색하게, 다작작가 대니얼 디포의 책은 국내에 번역 출간된 것이 손에 꼽을 정도로 적습니다만, 다행히 전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year)(1722)는 한국어로 읽으실 수 있습니다. 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics)과 함께 어제도, 오늘도, 내일도 멋진 문학여행을! B 세계 최초의 언론 기사(one of the world's first examples of modern journalism)(1703) : 석방된 디포는 공교롭게도 1703년 런던과 브리스톨을 강타한 대폭풍(Great storm of 1703)을 직접 목도하였고, 이를 이듬해 현대적인 보도를 위한 모델로서의 디포의 폭풍(Defoe's The Storm as a Model for Contemporary Reporting)이란 제목으로 발표하습니다. 이는 현대적인 저널리즘의 세계 최초의 언론 기사(one of the world's first examples of modern journalism)로 간주됩니다. 즉 디포는 현대적인 보도 기자의 원조인 셈이지요! 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719)로 명성을 얻은 후에 출간한 전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year)(1722) 또한 소설과 현장 취재에 기반을 둔 기사의 절묘한 결합으로, 기자와 소설가를 모두 아우르는 ‘디포 스타일의 작품’입니다. 로빈슨이 3부작이라고?! 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719) : 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719)는 소설가보다 무역업자 겸 언론인으로 더욱 유명한 디포를 하루아침에 ‘스타 작가’로 만들어준 베스트셀러입니다. 원작의 인기에 힘입어 로빈슨 크루소가 다시 섬으로 돌아간 후 마다가스카르, 동남아시아, 중국 그리고 시베리아를 거쳐 영국으로 돌아오는 10년 9개월간의 세계 여행기를 다룬 2부 The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe와 종교와 신앙에 관한 글을 엮은 3부 Serious Reflections During the Life and Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe까지 집필하였습니다. 불과 2년(1719~1720) 사이에 3부작을 집필하였으니, 당시 디포가 얼마나 빨리, 많이 쓰는 다작작가인지 미루어 짐작할 수 있습니다. 저자도 제목을 못 외운다?! 문장형 제목 소설 : 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719)는 원제가 무척이나 긴~ 문장형 제목 소설로도 유명합니다. 이는 당대 소설 제목의 관행으로, 제목만 읽어도 독자가 어떤 내용의 소설이겠구나~ 손쉽게 알 수 있다는 장점이 있습니다만, 길어도 너무 길다는 단점이 있지요. The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates 조난을 당해 모든 선원이 사망하고 자신은 아메리카 대륙 오리노코 강 가까운 무인도 해변에서 28년 동안 홀로 살다가 마침내 기적적으로 해적선에 구출된 요크 출신 뱃사람 로빈슨 크루소가 그려낸 자신의 생애와 기이하고도 놀라운 모험 이야기 로빈슨 크루소의 실제 모델, 알렉산더 셀커크(Alexander Selkirk)(1676~1721) : 스코틀랜드 선원 알렉산더 셀커크(Alexander Selkirk)(1676~1721)는 아마도 ‘세계에서 가장 유명한 조난자’일 것입니다. 그는 1704년부터 칠레 서쪽에 위치한 후안페르난데스 제도(Juan Fernández Islands)의 마샤 티에라 섬(Mas a Tierra)에서 무려 4년간 홀로 생존하였습니다. 1809년 4년 4개월 만에 영국 듀크호(Duke)에 의해 구조되었습니다. 디포가 그의 행적에 감명을 받아 아마도 ‘세계에서 가장 유명한 조난소설’일 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719)를 썼고, 작품의 인기와 함께 그의 이름 또한 널리 알려졌으며, 소설의 인기에 힘입어 칠레 정부는 마샤 티에라 섬(Mas a Tierra)의 이름을 1966년 로빈슨 크루소 섬(Isla Robinson Crusoe)이라고 개명하였으며, 로빈슨 크루소 섬(Isla Robinson Crusoe) 서편의 작은 섬 또한 알레한드로 셀커크 섬(Isla Alejandro Selkirk)이라 명명되었습니다. 현재는 인구 800 ~ 900여명의 유인도로 개발되었습니다. 알렉산더 셀커크(Alexander Selkirk)(1676~1721)의 실제 삶은 로빈슨 크루소와 비슷하지만, 다른 면도 많습니다. 일단 그는 해적이며, 소설과 달리 난파가 아니라, 당시 항해를 주장한 선장에 맞서 Cinque Ports 호가 더 이상 항해가 불가능하다고 판단해 자발적으로 하선하였습니다. 실제로 Cinque Ports 호는 Malpelo Island(Isla de Malpelo)에서 운항을 멈췄고, 생존자들은 포로로 잡혔으니, 셀커크의 판단이 옳은 셈입니다. 선박 수리를 위해 잠시 정박한 마샤 티에라 섬(Mas a Tierra)은 비록 무인도이지만, 염소가 풍부해 주로 염소를 잡아먹으며 생존할 수 있었습니다. 조난 기간 또한 4년 4개월로 소설의 28년과는 큰 차이가 있죠. 영국으로 귀향한 셀커크는 여느 탐험가 못지않은 유명인사로 명성을 떨쳤으나, 로빈슨과 마찬가지로 방랑벽을 참지 못하고 다시 항해를 떠났고 바다에서 잠들었습니다. 영국 북부 스코틀랜드(Scotland)에서는 그의 출생지 로우어 라르고(Lower Largo) 항구에 동상을 세워 기리고 있습니다. 소설에 등장하는 섬은 오리노코 강(Río Orinoco) 하구의 트리니다드 섬(Trinidad) 인근이라는 점에서 같은 ‘남미 인근의 섬’이기는 하지만, 위치 자체가 상이합니다. 소설 초판에 그려진 그림에서 로빈슨은 두툼한 염소 가죽을 걸치고 있는데, 이는 중위도인 트리니다드 섬(Trinidad)에서는 무척 더운 복장으로, 디포가 그의 조난기에 영향을 받았다는 뚜렷한 증거입니다. 디포 외에도 ‘셀커크의 조난기’는 이후, 아니 현대에까지 수많은 문인들에게 영감을 선사하고 있으며, 이는 로빈슨 크루소 이후 로빈소네이드(Robinsonade)란 하나의 장르로 발전하였습니다. -목차(Index)- 프롤로그(Prologue). 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics) 101선을 읽어야 하는 7가지 이유 10가지 키워드로 읽는 대니얼 디포(Daniel Defoe) by 조명화 편집장 01. 영국의 언론인 겸 소설가, 대니얼 디포(Daniel Defoe)(1660~1731) 02. 세계 최초의 언론 기사(one of the world's first examples of modern journalism)(1703) 03. 로빈슨 크루소(Robinson Crusoe)(1719) 03-1. 문장형 제목 소설 03-2. 로빈슨 크루소의 실제 모델 알렉산더 셀커크(Alexander Selkirk)(1676~1721) 03-3. 로빈소네이드(Robinsonade) 04. 전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year)(1722) 05. 대니얼 디포(Daniel Defoe)를 만나는 장소 TOP5 06. 오디오북(Audio Books)으로 듣는 대니얼 디포(Daniel Defoe) 07. 대니얼 디포(Daniel Defoe) 어록(Quotes)(30) 대니얼 디포의 전염병 연대기(A Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe)(1722) 부록(Appendix). 세계의 고전을 여행하는 히치하이커를 위한 안내서(The Hitchhiker's Guide to Worlds’s Classics) A01. 하버드 서점(Harvard Book Store) 직원 추천 도서 100선(Staff's Favorite 100 Books) & 판매도서 100위(Top 100 Books) A02. 서울대 권장도서 100 A03. 연세필독도서 고전 200선 A04. 고려대학교 세종캠퍼스 권장도서 100선 A05. 서울대, 연세대, 고려대 공통 권장도서 60권 A06. 성균관대학교 오거서(五車書) 성균 고전 100선 A07. 경희대 후마니타스 칼리지(Humanitas College) 교양필독서 100선 A08. 포스텍(포항공대) 권장도서 100선 A09. 카이스트(KAIST) 독서마일리지제 추천도서 100권 A10. 문학상 수상작 및 추천도서(44) A11. 영어고전(English Classics) 오디오북을 무료로 듣는 5가지 방법(How to listen to FREE audio Books legally?)

Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe Summary

This purportedly true story, recorded by English author Daniel Defoe, tells of the strange life of Moll Flanders, a woman who lives in sin and wickedness, surviving only on her beauty, cleverness, and deceit. Finding herself in the role of mistress or kept woman, or alternatively married to a man that she does not love, Moll seduces various men and resorts to thievery to pay her way before eventually repenting for her sins at the end of her life. Moll Flanders was one of Defoe’s later works, written during a prolific period during which he published other famous works including The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Roxana, and A Journal of the Plague Year. Due to the somewhat scandalous nature of its content, Moll Flanders did not experience the immediate success that other of Defoe’s works did upon publication, but has since become recognized as a significant literary achievement. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
