Criticism of Moll Flanders

- Criticism of Moll Flanders       How should readers interpret the seeming contradictory character that Daniel Defoe presents in Moll Flanders?  Is her penitence a construction of irony?  While the question of irony was prominent in the earlier criticism of the 1950s and 1960s, most scholars have moved away from that question, acknowledging the existence of various types of irony and validating the true reformation of Moll.  Critics are now articulating other subtle and complex authorial strategies in Moll Flanders besides the use of irony, crediting Defoe with more of what it takes to be a "father of the novel."  Newer critical methodologies involving class and gender are also playing a r...   [tags: Moll Flanders Essays]
