D ageBy 1721 Defoe had become a recognised novelist with the success of Robinson Crusoe in 1719 His political work was tapering off at this point due to the fall of both Whig and Tory party leaders with whom he had been associated Ro. Did I enjoy this novel No In some ways its story and writing techniue are far too rudimentary for a 21st century reader It certainly didn t grab me the way other books have But I think if you want to see how the novel got from there to here you can t pass this by Because reading Moll Flanders is like watching the grainy footage of a home video of your lover at five years old You can see the gestures and traits that make up the person today but only sketched out in infant form You have to love it because you love the fully formed adult person now and it s so suee fascinating to see that some bits have been there since the very beginning I m a bit of lit geek and I loved seeing how you could see the beginnings of the characterrealist novel in Moll Flanders The whole thing is plot than character Certainly Moll has far less internal substance and texture than Madame Bovary or Anna Karenina However Moll is also the progenitor or one of the progenitors of later heroines like Scarlett O Hara Gone with the Wind Margaret Mitchell or Emma Harte A Woman of Substance Barbara Taylor Bradford survivalist bad girl who triumphs over everything the author throws at her And boy does he throw everything at her husband 1 is a seducing cad who marries her off to his brother husband 2 dies after a few years of marriage husband 3 turns out to be her brother husband 4 is a highway man who tricks her into marrying him but eventually lets her go husband 5 is a decent man who dies after five years of marriage And in between husbands 3 and 4 is an extended love affair And so Moll is also the daughter of the Wife of Bath Was this a good read Not in the fun sense of the term nor in the value 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

    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 know what any of those words mean then Moll Flanders will be a nice surprise for you and maybe you should get out Moll is essentially a working girl on the make but reall

    Style wise this classic novel isn’t the easiest book for the 21st century reader In period fashion Defoe goes in for many long long sentences full of commas and semi colons Some of them stretch to an entire page In terms of vocabulary though it’s remarkable how little English has changed in 300 yearsThe book is supposed to have
