I'mfond of reading. UsuallyI borrow books from the library,but I have a lot ofthem at home,too. I like to read booksabout the history of ourcountry, about famous people andthe life of my contemporariesabroad. Literature means much inmy life. It helps toform the character and theworld outlook, to understand lifebetter. My favoririte English writer is Daniel Defo: he was the founder of the realistic novel. Hewas also a brilliant journa-list and in many ways the father of modern Englishperiodicals. He founded and paved the way for many magazines ( «TheRevue», «The Spectator»). DD was born in London, his father abutcher, was wealthy enough to give his sone a good education. D was to becomea prist, but it was his cheariched desire to become wealthy. His wished wasnever fullfield. D was banckrote several times. He was always in deep debt. Theinly branch of business in which he proved succesful was journalism and literature.When D was about 23 he started writting pamphlets on question of the hour. Hestarted writting pamphlets prassing King William 3, who was supported by thewhig party. D wrote a setire in woth. No matter in whose defends his brilliantpamphlets were written they are irony was so subtle, that the enemy didn'tunderstand it at first. But as soon as his enemy realised the real character ofthe pamphlets D was sentensed to 7 years inprisonment. It was a cruelpunishment, and when the came for him to be set free people carried him ontheir shoulders… This was the climax of his political career and the end ofit. In 1719, he tried his hand at another kind of literature — fiction, andwrote the novel he is now best known: «Robison Crusoe». After thebook was published, D became famous and rich and was able to pay his creditorsin full. Other novels which D were also very much talked about during hislifetime, but we do not hear much about them now. For example «CaptainSingleton»(1720), «Moll Flanders»(1722). Myfamous book is Robinson Crusoe :It was about Scotish sailor, who lived quite alone 4 years and 4 month on adesert island. Defoe's hero, however spend 26 years on a desertisland. The novel was a prase tohuman labour and the triumph the men over thenature. Labour and fortitude help Robinson to endure hardships. They save himfrom dispair. The very process of hardwork gives his satisfaction. R's mostcharacteristic tract is his optimism. His guiding prencipal in life was:«never said die» and «in trouble to be troubles is to have yourtrouble double.» In his book Defo deseccribes adventures ofpeople take risks. His books tought us to be clever and brave. <span Arial",«sans-serif»;color:navy;mso-ansi-language:EN-US">There aremany famous people in our republik.
