Moll Flanders, Paperback / softback Book

Moll Flanders Paperback / softback

Part of the Collins Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'My true name is so well known in the Records or Registers at Newgate, and in the Old Bailey, and there are some things of such consequence still depending there, relating to my particular conduct, that it is not to be expected I should set my name or the account of my family to this work.' Born into the seedy world of Newgate Prison and abandoned as a baby at six months old, Moll Flanders soon learns that she can only rely on herself.

Her story is an unapologetic one of bigamy, prostitution and theft told in her own indomitable and alluring way.

Scurrilous and incorrigible, the reader is left wondering whether Moll is merely a brazen criminal, or a victim or her own circumstance. Defoe's witty romp through the eighteenth-century underworld has much to say about the forces of good and evil and is undeniably one of his most satirical novels.
