Lesson 1 (from Preface:)
The student will be able to recount enough background history of 18th century England to understand the times when the novel takes place.
1. Students take notes from a teacher lecture on Daniel Defoe, the novel MOLL FLANDERS, and enough history of England, the Colonies, Newgate Prison
and the disparity between the rich and the poor in the 18th century.
2. Teacher leads the discussion on Defoe as being primarily known for his novel, ROBINSON CRUSOE, although his was a writer of both fiction and non-
fiction. Published in 1722, MOLL FLANDERS is a commentary on poverty and convoluted morality of the day. Discuss the relationship between
poverty and criminality, a cause and effect that runs throughout history.
Homework: Read the preface and and write three paragraphs about why Defoe seems to make an apology for the candor of the story.
