One of the problems with reviewing the earliest authors of fiction is that they were writing at a time before the rules had been properly worked out Novels took on the form we know and love because of these writer s successes and because of their failures It was up to them to forge the templates and if a certain template didn t work then they could try a new one with the next book A Journal of the Plague year is a case in point Although Defoe was alive at the time of plague this is actually a fictional account written sixty years later but one which relies heavily on anecdotal reportage Defoe gives us a narrator to guide us through but this man is just a cipher a pair of eyes and ears to relate what he sees and hears We know where he lives what he does how many servants he has and that he has a brother but not much else about him He is there to tell the tales Defoe heard to describe scenes that Defoe saw or at least had described to him by others But the fact he has little definable character means there s an odd vacuum at the centre a distance that stops the reader fully empathising It s a decision few authors of a later vintage would have taken if only because they d learnt from this book s mistake In addition as perhaps befits the first person account of a tradesman the tale is not separated into chapters and rambles constantly down odd little cul de sacs With the result that it can often be an irritating readThat s not to say that there aren t good things in this book the descriptions of the mass graves and a populous so caught in madness they will proclaim their own sins in the middle of the road will certainly stay with me But this is not the most accessible of fictional histories and is a book that really makes you work hard for the treasures it has

The Danse Macabre from The Seventh Seal is no mystery to me today why it is that the name of an eighteenth century novelist Moll Flanders Robinson Crusoe is still known okay not to everyone but to readers of literature He s just flat out a great writer This book which has been staring me in the face on my books to be read during the pandemic list for a few months is just exactly the kind of literary mountain I have historically liked to climb for reasons probably closer to masochism than anything else But as I said I liked Moll Flanders and Robinson Crusoe and have a bunch of pandemic books unread on my to read list And then I thought I might see how the Black Death was like or unlike Covid 19 We know so much now we are so advanced We respect science We know what to do to save ourselvesI just now learned that DeFoe took a few years to write this book in the form of a journal publishing it in 1722 It was based on the occasion of The Black Death or the Great Plague killed anywhere from 70 100000 out of a total population of around 460000 This was 1665 and the plague largely ended in London a year later when the Great London Fire would also decimate the city The world population was estimated at about 550 million at the time and that plague they think may have killed as many as 25 million of the roughly 75 million living in Europe at the timeI know a few things about The Plague or I thought I did but DeFoe s novel that fictionalizes an HF as the narrator of his own journal set me straight on a lot of things It was supposedly written based in part on the journal his uncle Henry Foe kept at the time fortified by his own deep research of actual events and statistics I ll call the book historical fiction but it reads at times like science counting infections and deaths in various wards and so on But I really did expect to find when I read it that we know WAY today about plagues and pandemics than we did 250 years ago and have changed as a human race enough to truly counteract the disease Decide for yourselfEarly on there was great denial that it was anything to really anything to worry about Oh it s just like the flu maybe a little worse but it s so variable why worry about it at all As it got worse people of science as well as every day observers began to study it of course Early on they deduced that the disease seemed to be transferred through effluvium or bodily fluids especially through respiration getting breathed on by those infected and possibly perspiration There were lots of theories that included transmission by insects such as flies that stand today too At one point many thought animals were responsible which led to the needless killing of thousands of pets and farmyard animals But imagine this People of science began to advocate for the wearing of masks and other head coverings Nah can t work you say A waste of time And many people did ignore this in part bolstered by their courage that THEY would never get this diseasePeople tried as much as they could to live life as they did before ignoring doctors and health care professionals Especially after weeks in health care recommended lock down imagine this people in the late seventeenth century were told to stay home and avoid large crowds at all costs Ignorance Don t they value their freedom Who are these supposedly scientific tools of totalitarianism people just got sick of the lockdown and went back to living as they did pretending the Plague was over thus spiking infections and deaths considerably imagine But I mean how many times can you see reruns of Andy of Mayberry or the X Files Get back to the bar rightMany defended their not paying attention to the Plague because of their religious beliefs primarily re predestination as in If God wants to take me he will do that To fight against what God wants to do with my body is blasphemy Eat drink and be merryMany religious people used the occasion of the Plague to blame any number of types of sinners for what was happening as a judgement from God for their sins like the Old Testament God that brought The Flood down on sinners to wipe out almost the entire human populationAs the disease progressed it brought on any number of fake cures Plague Water for Sale Guaranteed to cure the Plague or your money back and charlatans and scams and price gouging This thermometer by my desk I got for 79 but could have been bought for around 12 six months ago Hoarding was typical among those wise enough to stay inside for great lengths of time but in general people were largely unprepared for the tragedy including the completely overwhelmed healthcare industryLots of rumors and guesses proliferated Get a boat You ll be safe Hey let s go on a cruise People are dying in London Get out of town and get out in the country or go abroad where there s no disease thus spreading it everywhere And this one early on was common Hoax But how to get around that as one strain of The Black Death featured boils and other sores You could see many who had the infection and then you could see the piles of bodies But the strain that killed you most uickly had almost no warning signs was largely asymptomatic It spread like wildfire because people thought I m not sick let me give Grandma a big hug Imagine thatThe widespread death and lockdown led to paranoia depression madness increases in crime including theft of supplies and food and murder And There was widespread and massive grief for all the death of course so despair was rampant Suicides were upThe poor were disproportionately affected as they had to work or ignored the advice of professionals for various reasonsAs soon as the numbers of infections and deaths started to go down things started to open up people started to party creating infections and deaths Nah Wouldn t happen today We re too smart for thatThere was no universal health system in fact there was almost no safety net at all though The Church and some government agencies helped a little with Charity But the health care system didn t have a cure a vaccine of course They were not prepared for it Imagine DeFoe writing this as a guide to future generations to warn them to be ready if it ever happened again Of course it will never happen again it s completely random We re completely safeThe economy was of course shot as businesses had to close everyone lost their jobs there was no money to buy anything Many heroic acts of charity were performed by health care and other leaders helping to avert greater losses Aren t you glad that we especially in America We are 1 know so much than we did 250 years ago
