Description - The Life of Daniel Defoe by John Richetti

The Life of Daniel Defoe examines the entire range of Defoe's writing in the context of what is known about his life and opinions. The book provides a commentary on most of his voluminous political, religious, moral, and economic journalism, as well as on all of his narrative fictions. All these works are situated in the precise historical circumstances of the eighteenth century in which Defoe was an important and active participant. The biography focuses on Defoe's life and mind as it appears in his writing, and emphasises his distinctive style and rhetoric.
