Product Description

Review

"A very helpful edition of Moll Flanders with its informative introduction and especially its thorough endnotes. It is an edition especially helpful for undergraduates who do not have such a broad knowledge of the 18th century laws, social problems, etc."--Judith B. Slagle. Carson-Newman College
"Excellent edition has all of the necessary 'extras': introduction and notes, both reflecting excellent scholarship."--Arline Garbarini, Dominican College

Product Description

Moll, which she emphasizes is not her birth name, though she never does reveal what it was, is raised until she is teenager in America by a foster mother. She then gets a job as a household servant where she is loved by both of the families sons. The oldest convinces her to "act as if they where married" in bed, but then is unwilling to marry her, and pawns her off on his younger brother. She is then widowed, and leaves her children behind to begin a new life. She pretends to be a fortuned widow to attract a man that will marry her and provide her with security.

Synopsis

A complete and unabridged edition of Defoe's classic tale about a girl called Moll Flanders, who does everything within her power to succeed in life despite her lowly background.
