Samuel Richardson's Pamela is a captivating story of one young woman's rebellion against the social order, edited by Peter Sabor with an introduction by Margaret A. Doody in Penguin Classics.
Fifteen-year-old Pamela Andrews, alone in the world, is pursued by her dead mistress's son. Although she is attracted to Mr B, she holds out against his demands and threats of abduction and rape, determined to protect her virginity and abide by her moral standards. Psychologically acute in its explorations of sex, freedom and power, Richardson's first novel caused a sensation when it was published, with its depiction of a servant heroine who dares to assert herself. Richly comic and full of lively scenes and descriptions, Pamela contains a diverse cast of characters ranging from the vulgar and malevolent Mrs Jewkes to the aggressive but awkward country squire who serves this unusual love story as both its villain and hero.
In her introduction, Margaret Ann Doody discusses the epistolary genre of novels and examines the role of women and class differences. This edition, based on the 1801 text and incorporating corrections made in 1810, makes Richardson's final version of the two-volume generally available for the first time.
Samuel Richardson (1689-1761) was born in Derbyshire, the son of a joiner. He received little formal education, but in 1706 was apprenticed to a London printer, going on to become a leading figure of the trade in the capital. Pamela originated as a volume of model letters for unskilled letter-writers, but as Richardson became more fascinated by the characters in his letters than the letters themselves, the germ of a novel began to emerge. Upon its publication in 1740 Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded became a national sensation.
If you enjoyed Pamela, you might like Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders, also available in Penguin Classics.

Recenzii

Praise for the series: 'At last we are going to have a definitive edition of Samuel Richardson's works and correspondence, long overdue, for the writer who was the most influential novelist of the eighteenth century. This ambitious project, 25 volumes of his works and his most important literary correspondence - each volume entrusted to a respected scholar - will illuminate all areas of eighteenth-century studies for Richardson's oeuvre lights up the entire century.' Ruth Perry, Ann Fetter Friedlaender Professor of the Humanities and MacVicar Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Praise for the series: 'At last, this most editorially neglected of great writers is getting the treatment that his works and correspondence deserve. Scholars are eager to get their hands on the first volumes of this complete Richardson, with authoritative texts and rich annotation prepared by a world-class team under Keymer and Sabor's leadership. This new edition marks an epoch in Richardson studies.' Jane Spencer, Professor of English, University of Exeter
'The entire publication is something of a momentous occasion for readers interested in eighteenth-century literature and the history of the novel.' The Cambridge Quarterly
