Till date, Daniel Defoe is considered to be the founder of British journalism. In his life, he served as a trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy. Starting off to train himself at the ministry, he opted to become a merchant and started several businesses. However, none of those flourished well as he was constantly under the realm of facing bankruptcy and aggressive creditors. It was his political interest and aspirations that led him to serve as a prolific political pamphleteer. He penned a number of political essays and works before finally turning to fiction to pen his most famous work, ‘Robinson Crusoe’. He is widely recalled as one of the earliest proponents of novel writing. He encouraged novel writing and reading along with fellow novelists such as Samuel Richardson and so on. Immensely talented and skilled, he is said to have published over 560 books and pamphlets, on various topics including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology and supernatural.
