Bert Walpole was beginning his rise Defoe was never fully at home with the Walpole group Defoe's Whig views are nevertheless evident in the story of Moll The novel's full title gives some insight into this and the outline of the plot.

this type of work our role is akin to that of a priest we listen to the confessions and tacitly provide understanding or forgiveness To elicit our sympathy Defoe places Moll in an environment not only hostile but enticing a world he would have us believe that tempts and lures an otherwise virtuous individual into a life of crime Moll s world ostensibly mimetic is really portrayed with great

material possessions are foregrounded while the rest of Moll s setting recedes into the background The elder brother as we could predict does not marry Moll and her reluctant marriage to the younger brother done only out of financial necessity receives a rapid narration Molls tells us there is little worth describing I lived with this husband only to observe that I had two children by him and

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 told came off but three Yeares from the romaunce of Robinson Crusoe that was cast away on the Island in the Oroonouoo This Dan Foe for such indeed was his original name was a scribbler for the news presses and a great stirrer of pothers for the Politick Parties and so twas nothing astonishing that he got himself into Newgate a time or two and also had a spell in the Stocks and he dabbled in Matters of Business with gusto than wise discrimination and of a like twas no great surprize that he finds himself Publickly Bankrupted and so finding he can turn out tales at speed and that the Printers are at need of a very fluid pen he puts forth eight long tales in FIVE YEARS and him a man of SIXTY years In those dayes of ueen Anne and King George THE FIRST this style of tale telling was new there was hardly an one before Crusoe and so it was called novel meaning a NEW THING So to come now to Mistress Moll it was no meer nothing that an entertainment should be found in the detailled moral conundrums that this woman was got into at so many times and what she herself made of them and how she justifyed them and so forth Each twist of FATE is to be chewed over mightily for page upon page until Mistress Moll s jaws may shurely have begun twingeing Ponder ponder ponder so goes she And then ponder ponder ponder But on occasion Moll will come forth with such a line as this It is but here and there that a Man is to be Found who is fit for a Woman to Venture uponIn regards to the NOVEL may we say this I wonder That by the time the 4th or 5th child has begun walking and talking it is not such a Phenomenon indeed may you look back and shake your Head at the great wonder you did make of the first that did so
