Intended by Defoe as the great defence of the revolution settlement of 1688 and "The poem to establish his reputation as an important poet. Jure divino is a philosophical verse essay in 12 books, running to 375 pages of heroic couplets. According to Defoe, he never published most of the part composed before his arrest for seditious libel in 1703 because he feared it would give dangerous offence; what has survived was mostly written in prison and was completed during the time of insecurity and distress immediately thereafter. Published in 1706 after delays during which he tried to secure more subscribers and waited out political situations that might have embroiled his poem in new and threatening controversy, it was immediately pirated by a former printer of Defoe's and even abridged into a chapbook; Defoe claimed that he lost £1500 because of the piracy" (ODNB).
