Beschrijving

"The Storm" (1704) is a founding document of modern journalism. It tells of the events of November 1703, when a hurricane struck Britain. It is composed of verbatim eyewitness accounts, solicited from survivors through a newspaper advertisement that Defoe placed shortly after the hurricane struck.
This account remains a required reading for journalism students to this day.



Daniel Defoe (c. 1660-1731) was and English writer and spy. His most famous novel, "Robinson Crusoe" (1719), is one of the earliest novels ever written, making Defoe a founding figure of the English novel. He is also remembered for his "Moll Flanders" (1722) and "Journal of the Plague Year" (1722), which remains a required reading for journalism students to this day, side-by-side with the non-fiction account of "The Storm" (1704). He wrote more than three hundred books, pamphlets and journals in his lifetime and was often in trouble with the authorities.

Over de auteur

Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) was een Engelse handelaar, schrijver, journalist en spion. Velen zien in hem de grondlegger van de moderne Engelse roman. Hij schreef ruim 300 boeken en pamfletten, maar hij werd vooral bekend van zijn boek Robinson Crusoe uit 1719. Het boek werd talloze malen uitgegeven en vertaald.
