DEFOE, Daniel (1660-1731)

English journalist and novelist, born in London of Flemish descent, son a chandler and best
known for the novel, Robinson Crusoe (1719). Middle class in his birth, Presbyterian in his
religion, he belonged to the hardy Nonconformist tradesfolk who, after the Restoration, slowly
increased their wealth and toward the end of the seventeenth century began to achieve political
importance. His restless mind was fertile in “projects,” both for himself and for the country; and
his itch for politics made the role of passive observer impossible for him.
