Book Excerpt :

‘Lord have mercy upon us’. If these words were painted on your door, it could only mean one thing—you were one of the infected. In the years 1665 and 1666, the bubonic plague ravaged London. Bodies piled up on the streets, families quarantined themselves indoors. 100,000 people would perish, a quarter of the city’s population. In "A Journal of the Plague Year", Daniel Defoe offer a fictionalised account of the pandemic, seen through the eyes of a God-fearing, upper-class Londoner. Gruesome and vivid in its details, it makes for a terrifyingly relevant read for modern audiences. 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".

Book Short 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.

Book Short Summary:

The Plague's origins were mysterious, but its consequences were all too obvious: quarantined cities, safe-sex machines, Sex Police, the outlawing of old-fashioned love. 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.

Book Short 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."

Book Short 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.

Book Short Summary:

An Instant New York Times Bestseller From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Looming Tower—a riveting thriller and “all-too-convincing chronicle of science, espionage, action and speculation” (The Wall Street Journal) At an internment camp in Indonesia, forty-seven people are pronounced dead with acute hemorrhagic fever. When epidemiologist Henry Parsons travels there on behalf of the World Health Organization to investigate, what he finds will have staggering repercussions. Halfway across the globe, the deputy director of U.S. Homeland Security scrambles to mount a response to the rapidly spreading pandemic leapfrogging around the world, which she believes may be the result of an act of biowarfare. And a rogue experimenter in man-made diseases is preparing his own terrifying solution. As already-fraying global relations begin to snap, the virus slashes across the United States, dismantling institutions and decimating the population. With his own wife and children facing diminishing odds of survival, Henry travels from Indonesia to Saudi Arabia to his home base at the CDC in Atlanta, searching for a cure and for the origins of this seemingly unknowable disease. The End of October is a one-of-a-kind thriller steeped in real-life political and scientific implications, filled with the insight that has been the hallmark of Wright’s acclaimed nonfiction and the full-tilt narrative suspense that only the best fiction can offer.

  • Pdf File: moscow-in-the-plague-year.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Written during the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Moscow famine that followed, these poems are suffused with Tsvetaeva's irony and humor, which undoubtedly accounted for her success in not only reaching the end of the plague year alive, but making it the most productive of her career. We meet a drummer boy idolizing Napoleon, an irrepressibly mischievous grandmother who refuses to apologize to God on Judgment Day, and an androgynous (and luminous) Joan of Arc. "Represented on a graph, Tsvetaeva's work would exhibit a curve - or rather, a straight line - rising at almost a right angle because of her constant effort to raise the pitch a note higher, an idea higher ... She always carried everything she has to say to its conceivable and expressible end. In both her poetry and her prose, nothing remains hanging or leaves a feeling of ambivalence. Tsvetaeva is the unique case in which the paramount spiritual experience of an epoch (for us, the sense of ambivalence, of contradictoriness in the nature of human existence) served not as the object of expression but as its means, by which it was transformed into the material of art." --Joseph Brodsky While your eyes follow me into the grave, write up the whole caboodle on my cross! 'Her days began with songs, ended in tears, but when she died, she split her sides with laugher!' --from Moscow in the Plague Year: Poems

Book Short 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.

Book Short Summary:

In 1665 the plague swept through London, claiming over 97,000 lives. Daniel Defoe was just five at the time of the plague, but he later called on his own memories, as well as his writing experience, to create this vivid chronicle of the epidemic and its victims. 'A Journal' (1722) follows Defoe's fictional narrator as he traces the devastating progress of the plague through the streets of London. Here we see a city transformed: some of its streets suspiciously empty, some - with crosses on their doors - overwhelmingly full of the sounds and smells of human suffering. And every living citizen he meets has a horrifying story that demands to be heard.

Book Short 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...

This study contends that the main characters in Defoe's six major fictions represent a more profound anxiety and cynicism regarding the human condition than has been generally recognized. From Robinson Crusoe to Roxana -- each is engaged in a lonely and futile search for identity and significance, and each pursues that goal with ruthless singlemindedness.

Book Short Summary:

The Great Plague swept through London in 1665, claiming nearly 100,000 lives. In A Journal of the Plague Year Defoe vividly chronicles the progress of the epidemic. We follow his fictional narrator through a city transformed – the streets and alleyways deserted, the houses of death with crosses daubed on their doors, the dead-carts on their way to the pits-and encounter the horrified citizens of the city, as fear, isolation, and hysteria take hold. The shocking immediacy of Defoe’s description of plague-racked London makes this one of the most convincing accounts of the Great Plague ever written.

Book Short 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.

Book Short 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.

Book Short 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.

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?)

Book Short Summary:

Moll Flanders is, according to Virginia Woolf, one of the "few English novels which we can call indisputably great." Written by Defoe in 1722 under a pseudonym so his readers would think it an actual journal of the ribald fortunes and misfortunes of a woman in eighteenth-century London, the book remains a picaresque novel of astonishing vitality. From her birth in Newgate Prison to her ascent to a position of wealth and stature, Moll Flanders demonstrates both a mercantile spirit and an indomitable will. This vivid saga of an irresistible and notorious heroine--her high misdemeanors and delinquencies, her varied careers as a prostitute, a charming and faithful wife, a thief, and a convict--endures today as one of the liveliest, most candid records of a woman's progress through the hypocritical labyrinth of society ever recorded. "Defoe seems to have taken his characters so deeply into his mind that he lived them without exactly knowing how," wrote Virginia Woolf. "Like all unconscious artists, he leaves more gold in his work than his own generation was able to bring to the surface."

Book Short Summary:

Beautiful, proud Roxana is terrified of being poor. When her foolish husband leaves her penniless with five children, she must choose between being a virtuous beggar or a rich whore. Embarking on a career as a courtesan and kept woman, the glamour of her new existence soon becomes too enticing and Roxana passes from man to man in order to maintain her lavish society parties, luxurious clothes and amassed wealth. But this life comes at a cost, and she is fatally torn between the sinful prosperity she has become used to and the respectability she craves. A vivid satire on a dissolute society, Roxana (1724) is a devastating and psychologically acute evocation of the ways in which vanity and ambition can corrupt the human soul.

Book Short Summary:

Daniel Defoe’s last novel, ‘Roxana: The Fortunate Mistress’ is a biographical account of a woman’s fight for survival. Having recently become penniless, Roxana is forced to resort to sexual services in order to keep herself afloat. Defoe’s flair for depicting female struggle render this a deeply human novel, unmissable for those who enjoyed Defoe’s own ‘Moll Flanders’.

Book Short Summary:

Moll Flanders is a novel by Daniel Defoe, first published in 1722. It purports to be the true account of the life of the eponymous Moll, detailing her exploits from birth until old age. By 1721, Defoe had become a recognised novelist, with the success of Robinson Crusoe in 1719. His political work was tapering off at this point, due to the fall of both Whig and Tory party leaders with whom he had been associated; Robert Walpole was beginning his rise, and Defoe was never fully at home with the Walpole group. Defoe's Whig views are nevertheless evident in the story of Moll, and the novel's full title gives some insight into this and the outline of the plot: The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders, &c. Who was Born in Newgate, and during a Life of continu'd Variety for Threescore Years, besides her Childhood, was Twelve Year a Whore, five times a Wife (whereof once to her own Brother), Twelve Year a Thief, Eight Year a Transported Felon in Virginia, at last grew Rich, liv'd Honest, and died a Penitent. Written from her own Memorandums. It is usually assumed that the novel was written by Daniel Defoe, and his name is commonly given as the author in modern printings of the novel. However, the original printing did not have an author, as it was an apparent autobiography. The attribution of Moll Flanders to Defoe was made by bookseller Francis Noble in 1770, after Defoe's death in 1731. The novel is based partially on the life of Moll King, a London criminal whom Defoe met while visiting Newgate Prison.

Book Short Summary:

Beginning with an account of her first marriage to a man she describes as a “fool,” Roxana tells the tale of her unusual life in a poignant first-person narrative. As her respect for her husband’s intelligence and character decline, Roxana and her husband grow apart, and he eventually abandons her to fend for herself. As a result, Roxana forsakes her virtue and turns to a life of prostitution. At first she does this only to ensure her survival, but as the years pass, Roxana uses her powers of seduction for more selfish gains as she manoeuvres herself into the position of mistress to rich and powerful men, and aspires to fame, fortune, and an ever higher social rank. Written as if it were the titular character’s autobiography, Roxana emulates author Daniel Defoe’s earlier work, Moll Flanders. However, as his final work, Roxana is much darker, and excludes the penitence and reform of the main character that is seen in Moll Flanders.

Book Short Summary:

"Robinson Crusoe" is Daniel Defoe’s best and most popular novel. It is structured like an autobiography of the main character, depicting his castaway adventures on a lonely island for 28 years. Defoe’s novel abounds in detailed natural descriptions, moments of calm before the stormy action, and powerful character development. It is the story of quite an ordinary man who struggles to survive in extraordinary circumstances through the help of God, his will to live, and the power of friendship. The action part is recommendable – cannibals, more castaways, and a recaptured English ship. Perhaps the first English novel, "Robinson Crusoe" is a text that should be approached by readers of all ages and walks of life. Daniel Defoe (c. 1660 – 1731) was an English novelist, journalist, and trader, most famous for his novel "Robinson Crusoe". He was often labelled the founder of the English novel. A prolific writer of more than five hundred books on various topics, Daniel Defoe was one of the most important names in literary circles at the time. His other works worth mentioning are "Moll Flanders", "A Journal of the Plague Year", and "Captain Singleton".

Book Short Summary:

An intimate portrait of the Great Plague of London. In the winter of 1664-65, a bitter cold descended on London in the days before Christmas. Above the city, an unusually bright comet traced an arc in the sky, exciting much comment and portending "horrible windes and tempests." And in the remote, squalid precinct of St. Giles-in-the-Fields outside the city wall, Goodwoman Phillips was pronounced dead of the plague. Her house was locked up and the phrase "Lord Have Mercy On Us" was painted on the door in red. By the following Christmas, the pathogen that had felled Goodwoman Phillips would go on to kill nearly 100,000 people living in and around London—almost a third of those who did not flee. This epidemic had a devastating effect on the city's economy and social fabric, as well as on those who lived through it. Yet somehow the city continued to function and the activities of daily life went on. In The Great Plague, historian A. Lloyd Moote and microbiologist Dorothy C. Moote provide an engrossing and deeply informed account of this cataclysmic plague year. At once sweeping and intimate, their narrative takes readers from the palaces of the city's wealthiest citizens to the slums that housed the vast majority of London's inhabitants to the surrounding countryside with those who fled. The Mootes reveal that, even at the height of the plague, the city did not descend into chaos. Doctors, apothecaries, surgeons, and clergy remained in the city to care for the sick; parish and city officials confronted the crisis with all the legal tools at their disposal; and commerce continued even as businesses shut down. To portray life and death in and around London, the authors focus on the experiences of nine individuals—among them an apothecary serving a poor suburb, the rector of the city's wealthiest parish, a successful silk merchant who was also a city alderman, a country gentleman, and famous diarist Samuel Pepys. Through letters and diaries, the Mootes offer fresh interpretations of key issues in the history of the Great Plague: how different communities understood and experienced the disease; how medical, religious, and government bodies reacted; how well the social order held together; the economic and moral dilemmas people faced when debating whether to flee the city; and the nature of the material, social, and spiritual resources sustaining those who remained. Underscoring the human dimensions of the epidemic, Lloyd and Dorothy Moote dramatically recast the history of the Great Plague and offer a masterful portrait of a city and its inhabitants besieged by—and defiantly resisting—unimaginable horror.
