By Daniel Defoe
Moll Flanders is, based on Virginia Woolf, one of many "few English novels which we will be able to name certainly great." Written by means of Defoe in 1722 lower than a pseudonym so his readers could imagine it an exact magazine of the ribald fortunes and misfortunes of a girl in eighteenth-century London, the e-book is still a picaresque novel of surprising power. From her beginning in Newgate legal to her ascent to a place of wealth and stature, Moll Flanders demonstrates either a mercantile spirit and an indomitable will. This bright saga of an impossible to resist and infamous heroine--her excessive misdemeanors and delinquencies, her assorted careers as a prostitute, an enthralling and trustworthy spouse, a thief, and a convict--endures this present day as one of many liveliest, such a lot candid documents of a woman's growth during the hypocritical labyrinth of society ever recorded. "Defoe turns out to have taken his characters so deeply into his brain that he lived them with no precisely realizing how," wrote Virginia Woolf. "Like all subconscious artists, he leaves extra gold in his paintings than his personal new release used to be capable of deliver to the surface."

In these situations, an aristocrat’s ostentatious concern with his various duties and obligations helped to demonstrate both his own verecundia and his respect for the addressee’s social position. Not surprisingly, in most cases the failure to offer thanks drew sharp rebukes. , for example, Cicero complains (perhaps a little unfairly) that Atticus’ freedman Dionysius has not formally passed on his thanks following a stay at the orator’s home (Att. 1; SB 130):32 “Dionysius, vir optimus, ut mihi quoque est perspectus, et doctissimus tuique amantissimus, Romam venit XV Kal.
Id et Lucceio et Pompeio valde gratum fore teque apud eos praeclare positurum confirmo et spondeo. I certainly want you to be assured that in doing what you have done on behalf of L. Lucceius you have obliged a man who is most grateful. What you have done is very welcome to Lucceius himself, and Pompey, whenever he sees me (and indeed he sees me often) expresses to you the most extraordinary thanks. I will add what I feel sure will be highly agreeable to you, that I myself have taken the greatest pleasure in your kindness to Lucceius.
Although the following discussion is based around seven specific letters, at several places I use these as a springboard for the detailed consideration of individual strategies of politeness. These strategies match in part those identified by Sophie Roesch in her brief survey of politeness in the correspondence;4 but by examining them in the context of specific letters, I hope to present a more nuanced picture of their use. This type of analysis requires a close engagement with the text of individual letters, and the pages that follow include both the Latin and an English translation of relevant passages in order to help the reader track the argument more precisely.
