wrote a continuation of the adventures of his hero. It was very like him to insert an aggrieved little preface, taking high moral grounds against the "envious people" who had called his work a romance, and saying that doing such deeds was " a Practice all honest Men abhor.'
Three years after Robinson Crusoe appeared, Defoe produced his Journal of the Plague Year, which was A written, the title-page gravely asserts, " by a citizen who continued all the while in London." This was literally true, although the aforesaid citizen was but four or five years old at the time of the visitation. The book describes minutely all the details of the terrible season, from the piteous " Lord, have mercy upon us! " written on the houses to the coming of the horrible dead cart that sometimes carried away the dying with the dead. It is most impressive, and has more than once been quoted as authority on the events of the pestilence. Defoe wrote several picaresque stories, or stories having rascals for heroes, each tale expected, according to the preface of the author, to bring any wicked reader to repentance.
