Daniel Defoe - Biography & Selected Products

Selected Products from Daniel Defoe

     

Daniel Defoe is most well-known for his classic novels Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders. Born circa 1659, he was also a journalist, a pamphleteer, a businessman, a spy ... and a writer of short stories. His life was long and colourful, and the breadth of his work, still highly regarded, is infused with similar vigor. 

In these short stories, Defoe succinctly emblazons his style upon subjects as diverse as apparitions, pirates, and politics. 

Defoe unfortunately often ran up large bills which could then not be repaid.  He was often most seen on Sundays when bailiffs and the like legally could make no move on him.  Allegedly whilst hiding from creditors he died on April 24th, 1731. He was interred in Bunhill Fields, London.
