nor in the judgement sense either But I think it certainly belongs in the canon and if that s something that matters to you and there s zero reason why it should then it certainly was a good read It is an universall and Fixed law that should a reader take up any of the works of Master De Foe she shall be obbliged to begin forthwith to write and may I say even to think in the manner of Master De Foe for it is like a virulent infecktion which will it may be seen redilly be habituated in exentrick spellings irregular Capitilizations alarming and unexplainable lunges into the italick and headlong sentense construction and the Devil take the hindmost Mistress Moll Flanderses tale self told came off but three Yeares from the romaunce of Robinson Crusoe that was cast away on the Island in the Oroonouoo This Dan Foe for such indeed was his original name was a scribbler for the news presses and a great stirrer of pothers for the Politick Parties and so twas nothing astonishing that he got himself into Newgate a time or two and also had a spell in the Stocks and he dabbled in Matters of Business with gusto than wise discrimination and of a like twas no great surprize that he finds himself Publickly Bankrupted and so finding he can turn out tales at speed and that the Printers are at need of a very fluid pen he puts forth eight long tales in FIVE YEARS and him a man of SIXTY years In those dayes of ueen Anne and King George THE In those dayes of ueen Anne and King George THE this style of tale telling was new there was hardly an one before Crusoe and so it was called novel meaning a NEW THING So to come now to Mistress Moll it was no meer nothing that an entertainment should be found in the detailled moral conundrums that this woman was got into at so many times and what she herself made of them and how she justifyed them and so forth Each twist of FATE is to be chewed over mightily for page upon page until Mistress Moll s jaws may shurely have begun twingeing Ponder ponder ponder so goes she And then ponder ponder ponder But on occasion Moll will come forth with such a line as this It is but here and there that a Man is to be Found who is fit for a Woman to Venture uponIn regards to the NOVEL may we say this I wonder That by the time the 4th or 5th child has begun walking and talking it is not such a Phenomenon indeed may you look back and shake your Head at the great wonder you did make of the first that did so.

Nd starts to court her she comments how I played with this lover as an angler does with a trout Moll uses what she has to get men to transfer their wealth to her On one occasion she is picked up by a wealthy gent Would such gentlemen but consider the contemptible thoughts which the very women they are concerned with in such cases as these have of themwhen he is as it were drunk in the ecstasies of his wicked pleasure her hands are in his pockets searching for what she can find there As Moll gets older she can no longer rely on her looks and turns to a life of crime By this point she has almost entirely lost her sense of right and wrong To most modern readers her life of borderline prostitution is not as shocking as it might have been in Defoe s time but other aspects of her behaviour are so She has several children by her various husbands but with one exception they disappear from the text almost as soon as they are mentioned As far as I could tell Moll simply abandons them Worth a read if you are interested in the classics Moll Flanders the tale of a bawdy wench out and about being bawdy and getting up to all manner of well bawdiness For those of you not up on your ye olde Englishness bawdy is a general term for something which is lewd obscene and lascivious If you don t now what any of those words mean then Moll Flanders will be a nice surprise for you and maybe you should get out the person who was reading this used 49 cent copy of moll flanders before me stopped reading at page 26 judging by the abrupt cessation of circled words like prattle would you were sir brother fell and he would i like to think about this person and their busy pen it s so arbitrary they are not even words that might be unfamiliar to a moderately literate reader i tried to find a code in it help i am being held hostage by a mad librarian but to no avail almost every page has at least six circles or underlines and then suddenly nothing did the pen run out of ink did they abandon moll flanders did they fall out of a tree it s mysterious another thing that is mysterious is moll flanders she swans through this book dripping babies from her body like a tree sheds leaves stealing and whoring and manipulating men to Consequences of Theory keep her head above water and yet i m not in love with her how can this be i mean it s a fine book but i can t see falling in love with it or with her character and honestly i don tnow what to make of the realization that if she had just stayed married to her brother in the first place she would have avoided a whole lot of trouble and had a lovely son and a fruitful plantation let this be a lesson to you choose wisely incest or a life of crime there is no in betweencome to my blog The Fortunes Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders cWho

a Transported Felon in Virginia at #last grew Rich liv d and dies a Penitent Written from her own Memorandums Original title page for #grew Rich liv d Honest and dies a Penitent Written from her own Memorandums Original title page for FlandersThe character of Moll Flanders has traditionally baffled criticsIs she an ironic character Is she truly penitent How may her inconsistencies be justified Critics have asserted there is irony in Moll Flanders but it is not in the book that is we as readers may appreciate irony in Moll s character but Defoe does not provide it What may be easier to demonstrate then is that Defoe s attitude toward Moll is consistent even if Moll herself ironically or otherwise is not James 203 Whatever the critics propose for readers Moll emerges as irascible vibrant and wonderfully complex Moll also shows the limited choices for a woman of her time Moll Flanders as the description from Defoe s original title page suggests is a novel written in the confessional mode As readers of this type of work our role is akin to that of a priest we listen to the confessions and tacitly provide understanding or forgiveness To elicit Our Sympathy Defoe Places sympathy Defoe places in an environment not only hostile but enticing a world he would have us believe that tempts and lures an otherwise virtuous individual into a life of crime Moll s world ostensibly mimetic is really portrayed with great selectivity Many characters even those as important as her first lover are not even named settings are often depicted as just a house or the street What does loom large on Moll s horizon is money Again and again Moll focuses on money and the material early on she defines herself in terms of her net worthMoll s indoctrination into a materialistic world starts in childhood Orphaned Moll is raised by an elderly woman who feels amused pity for Moll s desires to become a gentlewoman and let Molls live with her rather than go into service The ladies of the town curious about the little gentlewoman visit her and soon begin to give Moll gifts of money and fine clothes When Moll s elderly guardian dies one of the families that had shown an interest in Moll takes her into their home Though poor Moll describes how she receives an education euivalent to that of a gentlewoman By a twist in circumstances Moll gets an early taste of genteel living 9 far above her actual station Although Moll describes herself initially as very sober modest and virtuous 12 she is led into 3 things I liked about this book1 Moll s distinctive character and
