The recent adaptation of Moll Flanders for Masterpiece Theater is a book-lover's dream: the dialogue and scene arrangement are close enough to allow the viewer to follow along in the book. The liberties taken with the tale are few (some years of childhood between the gypsies and the wealthy family are elided; Moll is Moll throughout the tale, rather than Mrs. Betty; Robert becomes Rowland, etc /5().   Arranged has been sitting on my TBR since , immediately the blurb of the book had appealed to me but then it got lost in the too many books on the TBR shelf and I forgot about it. Fast forward three years and I was looking for a books to read that had been on my TBR for ever and this one of course came up/5.

AN OLD WOMAN. Dear old men, am I near the house where the new god lives, or have I missed the road? CHORUS. You are at his door, my pretty little maid, who question us so sweetly.[] OLD WOMAN. Then I will summon someone in the house. CHREMYLUS. 'Tis needless! I am here myself. But what matter brings you here? OLD WOMAN. Ah! a cruel, unjust fate! There was an old woman Who lived in a shoe, She had so many children She didn't know what to do; She gave them some broth Without any bread, And whipped them all soundly And sent them to bed. A long time ago there lived a woman who had four daughters, and these in time grew up and married and went to live in different parts of the country/

'Tis the vile daily drop on drop which wears The soul out (like the stone) with petty cares. A scolding wife, a sullen son, a bill To pay, unpaid, protested, or discounted At a per-centage; a child cross, dog ill, A favourite horse fallen lame just as he 's mounted, A bad old woman making a worse will, Which leaves you minus of the cash you counted. _YOU pay me a Compliment, tho' a very obliging one, when in the last Letter you favoured me with, you desire my Advice, with respect to the Disposition of your Son William; whom you are inclin'd to bring up to the Bar. If, in complying with your Request, I should say any thing you may not intirely approve, you will not have so much room to Page 2 blame me, as your own wrong Choice of a Counsellor.
