Note 6
by Ian Watt

See Mark Schorer's Introduction to Moll Flanders in the Modern Library College Edition, Random House (New York, 1950), for an excellent critical appraisal of the novel. A fuller treatment of Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders may be found in my Rise of the Novel: Studies in Defoe, Richardson, and Fielding (London, 1957).

Note to Defoe as Novelist
