The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders (commonly known simply as Moll Flanders) is a novel by Daniel Defoe, first published in 1722. It purports to be the true account of the life of the eponymous Moll, detailing her exploits from birth until old age.

《摩尔·弗兰德斯》是《鲁滨孙漂流记》的作者笛福的另一部独特的杰作,被英国作家沃尔芙誉为“英国不多的伟大小说之一”。小说以第一人称的手法书写,极具震撼力。书中的主人公一直以罪人的身份出现——她从十八岁到六十岁,除杀人、叛国外真可谓无恶不作。女主人公弗兰德斯生于监狱,在孤儿院长大,给贵族家庭当仆人。她被主人家的大公子诱骗后被迫嫁给她所不爱的二公子。婚后五年,丈夫病死,弗兰德斯成了寡妇。过了一段淫荡的生活后,她再嫁给一个在殖民地拥有田产的人。不久,她发现丈夫就是自己的亲哥哥。

Written in a time when criminal biographies enjoyed great success, Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders details the life of the irresistible Moll and her struggles through poverty and sin in search of property and power. Born in Newgate Prison to a picaresque mother, Moll propels herself through marriages, periods of success and destitution, and a trip to the New World and back, only to return to the place of her birth as a popular prostitute and brilliant thief. The story of Moll Flanders vividly illustrates Defoe's themes of social mobility and predestination, sin, redemption and reward.

丹尼尔·笛福(1660~1731),英国小说家,英国启蒙时期现实主义小说的奠基人,被誉为“欧洲小说之父”。作品可读性强。作为一名丰富多产、多才 多艺的作家,他出版了约500本著作,主题广泛多样 ,包括政治、地理、犯罪、宗教、经济、婚姻、心理 学和迷信。转向小说创作相对较晚,1719年出版了极 具想象力的作品《鲁滨逊漂流记》。此后在1722年相 继出版了《摩尔弗兰德斯》和《瘟疫年纪事》, 1725年出版了最后一部小说《罗克莎娜》。笛福对英 国小说的发展有着很大影响,很多人认为他是第一个 真正的小说家。

Daniel Defoe ( 1660 – 24 April 1732), born Daniel Foe, was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer and spy, now most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. A prolific and versatile writer, he wrote more than five hundred books, pamphlets and journals on various topics (including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology and the supernatural). He was also a pioneer of economic journalism.

There was a bed in the room, and we were walking to and again, eager in the discourse; at last he takes me by surprise in his arms, and threw me on the bed and himself with me, and holding me fast in his arms, but without the least offer of any indecency, courted me to consent with such repeated entreaties and arguments, protesting his affection, and vowing he would not let me go till I had promised him, that at last I said, 'Why, you resolve not to be denied, indeed, I can't be denied.' 'Well, well,' said I, and giving him a slight kiss, 'then you shan't be denied,' said I; 'let me get up.'
