DANIEL DEFOE

Classic Literary Author Biography

Daniel Defoe (1659 – 1731)

classic book author daniel defoeDaniel Defoe was best known for his fictional novel Robinson Crusoe.
He was born in London and was educated at Stoke Newington, leaving to become a merchant in wine, wool and hosiery, and whilst he was successful he had a tendency to spend more than he earned.

His political exploits saw him arrested in 1703, after writing a pamphlet – The Shortest Way with the Dissenters” which he satirised the High Church Tories calling for the extermination of dissenters. He was put into a pillory but the public threw flowers instead of rotten fruit and unpleasantries.

Following three days in the pillory, Daniel Defoe was sent to Newgate Prison and was released later for his services as an intelligence agent for the Whig government.
His famous novel, Robinson Crusoe was finished in 1719, telling the story of a shipwreck on a deserted island.
