One thought on “Moll Flanders

  1. karen

    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 [...]

    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 to [...]

    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 really she s just trying to find Mr Right and settle down with a nice respect [...]

    Did I enjoy this novel No In some ways, its story and writing technique 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 lov [...]

    3 things I liked about this book 1 Moll s distinctive character and voice2 Her ability to turn almost any situation into a positive, eventually Moll Flanders wobbles, but she never falls down 3 How the book highlighted the difficult positions a woman could be left in during this period as a result of, for example, becoming widowed with children, not having a husband family to support her, having illegitimate children, or being married and thus all personal property legally belonging to the husba [...]

    Women You need to read this book Armchair Historians You need to read this book Forensic Sociologists You need to read this book.Moll Flanders is, I think, a rare look at the treatment and disposition of lower class women in Britain in the early 1700s what they thought, how they comported, and their daily interactions, no matter how insignificant What makes it a rare exposition Fiction ofttimes captures the mood and milieu of a people and their condition far accurately and with much meaning th [...]

    When I was younger, I was a smart girl but not smart enough to get a full scholarship to college My parents were poor, so any help from them was out of the question I knew I had to make it on my own So, I worked three jobs during my freshman year I worked at White Castle, I typed stuff for attorneys, and I did another job that I have never told anyone about until now I was Mrs Claus I worked for a company that had dozens of Mrs Clauses who would call children during the holiday season I got an e [...]

    Ever wondered what the significance of Ned Flander s wife s name on the Simpons Moll Flanders is about a woman that not only fell on hard times, but is a strong, self asserted woman that uses any possible wiles to survive in a time when women were still nothing than trinkets She goes from reputable, to the London street slum, to accidentally marrying her brother, to living a long life with one that she loves.Far beyond its time, Moll Flanders is a classic Hard to read at times, as is most of th [...]

  11. Frederick

    This, of course, was called an actual memoir when it was published Today s novelists should take note The first novels definitely were meant to deceive the public into thinking they were true stories The Norton Critical Edition I read in college was one soild paragraph This means Defoe didn t get an effect out of the LOOK of his prose, unless an effect of incredible suffocation was intentional The fact that it was one paragraph drove me insane, as it did my elder brother, who, upon hearing I had [...]

  12. Kelly

    Largely confusing, frenetic action interspersed with long, prosy, preachy morality lessons, and then plunged right back into constant action again Defoe s storytelling appears almost entirely random, especially towards the end, picking out one tale to tell of her wicked ways and days, and suppressing others that sound much interesting There s hardly any reflection on character here, if any at all I m not counting the times when Defoe pauses to lecture his audience on God s mercy while having Mo [...]

  13. Cass

    I finally finished reading Moll Flanders, and I loved it.I have heard such negative reviews about this book I have heard it said that the heroine is not likeable She is painted as a whore and a thief I came away with an entirely different view.Her character hooked me from the start A beautiful and skillful woman, she is intelligent but unworldly She meets with great success in the beginning of the book due to her own personal accomplishments, aspirations, and personality She takes what little sh [...]

  14. Jim

    Amusing, picaresque portrait of an unsrupulous antiherione the narrator in 17th century England and America She lies, she steals, she whores whatever it takes I, and I suspect she, lost track of how many children she has by an assortment of fathers, but no matter The fact that there are no separate chapters may daunt some, but her amoral, approach to all her conflicts is most satisfing and you root for her to succeed.

  15. Katharine

    Last year I described this book as being like a big gushy Cinnabon, sweet, sticky, and cloying I love it to bits, but it does make me feel like I need to wash, or something.

  16. El

    I read this book as part of a reading project I have undertaken with some other nerdy friends in which we read The Novel A Biography and some of the other texts referenced by Schmidt I have long said, Oh, yeah, I ve read Moll Flanders I have it in my head I read it in college, either on my own or as part of a class.Now that I actually have read Moll Flanders, I can t seem to recall ever reading this story before I think the reality was I borrowed a friend s copy of Stephen Crane s Maggie A Girl [...]

  17. Donna

    My first thoughts on the reason why I disliked this book were that it was because of the old style of writing, but considering Shakespeare, Marlowe, Ford and Cervantes all provided enjoyable works before Defoe was on the scene, I therefore must look to the writer s skill as a fault in itself.I don t believe Moll Flanders to be a well crafted story This is mainly due to the fact that the protagonist s many displays of dumb luck leave an air of contrivance which contaminates the entire novel The r [...]

    Survival in the 17th Century15 January 2017 My first impression was that this woman has had husbands than Elizabeth Taylor, but when I counted them, even if you include the guys that she shacked up with as opposed to marrying, she just falls short Then again, I m not really sure we can compare Moll Flanders with Elizabeth Taylor because I have a feeling that the reason that Taylor married so many men wasn t out of desperation, or because her previous husband died leaving her with nothing Then a [...]

    my pride, not my principle, my money, not my virtue, kept me honest The copy of Moll Flanders that I read a Modern Library issue, from 1985 has the most perfect rendition of the heroine I have seen A library copy and purely a random chance, but there she is in wood cut, in all her disheveled, coarsely hedonistic splendor One high buttoned boot hooked up high on the arm of some couch, Moll Flanders, consummate whore Or hussy, or harlot, or maybe floozy, but it is most often as whore that she desc [...]

  20. Daniel

    Despite being one of the earliest English novels, and thus from a time incredibly different from our own, Daniel Defoe s Moll Flanders sucked me into its world far readily than I expected it to I attribute this mostly to the voice of Moll Flanders herself, who is so good natured, and so ready to make the best of whatever situation she finds herself in, it d be hard not to become enad of her Because Moll s society is so far removed from ours the book was written in 1722 and because so much of wh [...]

    Here s the thing, y all I m not afraid to enjoy old books, wordy prose, or unlikable protagonists The Mysteries of Udolpho Les Liaisons Dangereuses Zofloya The Turn of the Screw Madame Bovary Cecilia The Innocents Abroad These are some old books I ve loved Wordy prose, block paragraphs, old fashioned language they re the type of read that some people won t touch with a ten foot pole But this one Spare me It s boring It s overwritten It s tedious The prose is lifeless drowns Moll s supposed antic [...]

  22. Lisa

    Moll Flanders first and formost challenges ones conception of right and wrong Do the ends survival justify the means whatever deception or crime it takes to secure it In the past, I have always been one to argue, emphatically, that no, there is no such thing as situational ethics Yet, as I read this book, i realized that my thoughts on this came from a life of ease, in a society of justice and equal oportunity I am left thanking God that I was not a woman, especially one fallen on hard times, in [...]

  23. Beth

    This is the Diary of a penitent Sinner We know she was Penitent because she tells Us repeatedly, despite the fact that she continues to Sin with a Reckless abandonment that should be Enjoyable but is not, Really She essentially Runs around London prostituting herself for Around forty years, and stealing from people, insisting that she feels Bad while showing no evidence of feeling so There is some Enjoyment to be had in its depiction of the completely Unstoppable Mrs Flanders not her Real name a [...]

    Words cannot express how happy I am I m finally able to throw this book aside to never pick it up again Nothing of this novel worked for me, starting with the odd writing style It was painful and often than not I had to put it down because it was giving me headaches The narrator, Moll, didn t work to help the story either Moll Flanders was a torture and I don t care why it is still studied today My feelings won t change.

  25. Alina

    I enjoyed the last part most 50 year old extraordinarily skilled lucky con woman working in late 17th century London Yes please That said, I wasn t a fan of the writing style although I grew used to it It oftentimes reads like a summary than a novel, neglecting the fleshing out of setting and characters almost entirely I guess this stood out to me in particular since I read this right after Jane Eyre.

    Moll FlandersDaniel Defoe 1660 1731 Robinson Crusoe published in 1719 brought Daniel Defoe instant fame.In 1722 he published Moll Flanders.The author made believe that this novel, like Robinson Crusoe, was based on real life and told by the adventurer himself, or adventuress in the case of Moll Flanders Therefore the story is written in the first person, in the language of the early eighteenth century The first part of the novel, when Moll is telling about her very young childhood, as a little g [...]

  27. Sarah Anne

    This was a fun and funny story Moll is an interesting character because she starts out conventionally and then heads down a less moral path early on, slowly picking up speed along the way Her tales are sometimes so outlandish Oops I married my own brother that it s hard to believe that this could all happen to one person Perhaps it isn t so outlandish when you consider that the book covered nearly 70 years.I got many, many laughs out of this book, but I also thought it was remarkable in a couple [...]

    Koliko je u svom pionirstvu veliki ovaj roman, toliko je maestralan prevod Borivoja Nedi a iz 1960 godine.Volela bih da sam pro itala ovaj roman pre nego to sam imala prilike da stanem pred grob ovog oveka pre nekoliko godina, ali recimo da mu ni ovako nisam ostala du na u iskazivanju po tovanja Defoe rules P

  29. Andrea

    Read for my Classics Bingo Challenge.Here s the thing I didn t like Robinson Crusoe But I figured I d give Defoe another chance because the synopsis of this sounds really interesting Moll is a liar, a whore, a thief, a bigamist, AND she marries her brother and has his babies at some point Sure sounded like fun But honestly, to me, this read like a LONG list of interesting things that were then crammed into one book Like mh, what other despicable thing can I have my heroine do I didn t really fee [...]
