- Dover Thrift Editions: MOLL FLANDERS
DetailsBrilliant masterpiece of 18th-century realism, written in the form of an autobiographical memoir, recounts the dreadful facts of Moll's adventurous life -- her years in prison, as a prostitute and thief, as a "transported felon" in the American colonies and her final years, lived honestly in comfort and wealth.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Daniel Defoe, born Daniel Foe, was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer and spy. He is most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe, which is second only to the Bible in its number of translations. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularise the form in Britain with others such as Aphra Behn and Samuel Richardson, and is among the founders of the English novel. Defoe wrote many political tracts and often was in trouble with the authorities, including prison time. Intellectuals and political leaders paid attention to his fresh ideas and sometimes consulted with him.
