Daniel Defoe in the Pillory #BriFri #TodayInHistory — 3 Comments

  1. Joy, I never knew that, I always thought of him as a novelist and didn’t know about the political pamplets. The way things are going in our society today maybe it’s time to pay attention to history 🙂

  2. I didn’t know about the political pamphlets either! Robinson Crusoe was a big favorite with my oldest, who loves survival stories and read it at about ten years old. She thought he had it awfully easy with all those axes and ship salvage.

    This week I have a book of Dickens essays — it doesn’t get much more British than that!
