Abandoned at birth and threatened with a life in service, Defoe's young rebel sets her heart on independence. One fatal seduction and five husbands later she resorts to a life of self-supporting crime.
On her downward path from the relative respectability of London's underworld, Newgate Prison and eventual deportation, the indestructible Moll Flanders gives her frank opinion of temptation, flattery, fortune-hunters and innocence corrupted in the world of men.
