Daniel Defoe was from England and he was a writer among other things like trader, journalist and spy. He also wrote pamphlets. He wrote his most famous novel which was “Robinson Crusoe.” This book has been translated many times. The only other book that has been translated more is the Bible. Defoe is considered to be the person who helped discover the English novel. Defoe is also known for writing texts relating to politics.

However, since he wrote these political texts, the often got him into trouble with higher leaders in the area. He even went to prison. Even though “Robinson Crusoe” was a very popular book, Defoe actually wrote more than 300 texts on a variety of topics including crime, religion and marriage.
