Defoe in the pillory N110160

MAYSON BEETON COLLECTION. Engraving of Daniel Defoe in the pillory at Temple Bar, July 1703. In December 1702 Defoe had published a political pamplet entitled " Shortest Way with the Dissenters" which satirised the high-church arguments of those Tories who wished to abolish the practice of occasional conformity (which allowed Dissenters to hold office). In May 1703, when his authorship was discovered, Defoe was arrested for seditious libel and was sentenced to a large fine, to stand in the pillory three times and was sent to Newgate prison. Defoe stood in the pillory on 29, 30, and 31 July, ringed with protective supporters

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history, depicting Daniel Defoe standing defiantly in the pillory at Temple Bar in July 1703. The engraving, part of the Mayson Beeton Collection, showcases Defoe's unwavering spirit amidst political turmoil. The events leading up to this scene are crucial to understanding its significance. In December 1702, Defoe published a daring political pamphlet titled "Shortest Way with the Dissenters" which cleverly mocked the arguments of high-church Tories seeking to abolish occasional conformity. This practice allowed Dissenters to hold office and was fiercely debated during that time. However, when it was discovered that Defoe was behind this satirical work, he faced severe consequences. Arrested for seditious libel in May 1703, he received a hefty fine and an order to stand in the pillory three times at Temple Bar before being sent to Newgate prison. Despite his predicament, Defoe stood resolute as he faced public humiliation. Surrounding him were loyal supporters who formed a protective ring around him during these trying moments. This engraving from Historic England Photo Library serves as a powerful reminder of Defoe's courage and determination against oppressive forces. It immortalizes his defiance and resilience during one of the most challenging periods of his life—a testament to his enduring legacy as an influential writer and advocate for freedom of expression.
