Samenvatting

Throughout one of English history's most tumultuous periods, Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) took part in and reported on nearly every major political, religious, and social controversy. This widely acclaimed biography offers a fascinating account of Defoe's remarkable life. Paula Backscheider reveals new information about Defoe's secret career as a double agent, his daring business ventures, his dangerous pen-and his cat-and-mouse games with those who sought to control it. This is the definitive biography of one of eighteenth-century England's most influential figures-and one of the most prolific and widely read authors of all time

Recensie(s)

For the first time everything we know about Defoe is presented in a single orderly sequence..A searching study of a complex man, one that is coherent and credible for our times. * New York Times Book Review * A very considerable work of scholarship, and the first to give this prolific writer the extended treatment he after all deserves. * Washington Post Book World * Paula Backscheider spins this absorbing narrative with meticulous scholarship and lucidity. * Independent on Sunday *
