About the Author

Daniel Defoe (c. 1660 – 24 April 1731) was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, now most famously known for his novel 'Robinson Crusoe'. A versatile and prolific writer, Defoe was indeed at the heart of the emergence of the modern novel and journalism in the early 18th century. Although his 'HISTORY OF PIRATES – True Story of the Most Notorious Pirates' isn't as well known as 'Robinson Crusoe', it continues to be of significant importance for those interested in the golden age of piracy. Defoe's work in this treatise is one of the early examples of painstaking historical narrative about the lives of pirates, wherein he adopts a reportorial style that grounds his tales of high seas adventure in researched fact. Defoe's literary prowess was not limited to works of fiction; his oeuvre includes over 500 books, pamphlets, and journals on a wide range of topics, including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology, and the supernatural. His writing style, characterized by a vivid imagination as well as a compelling journalistic detail, has cemented him as an early innovator of the modern novel and a key contributor to the development of reportorial narratives, which was quite different in nature but highly influential in the literary world.
