One of the most spectacular successes of the flourishing literary marketplace of eighteenth-century London, Pamela also marked a defining moment in the emergence of the modern novel. In the words of one contemporary, it divided the world "into two different Parties, Pamelists and Anti-pamelists," even eclipsing the sensational factional politics of the day.

Pamela; Or, virtue rewarded. with an Introduction. WHEN Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded appeared in two volumes in November 1740 it was soon what we should call a ‘best seller’, the first example of that phenomenon in the history of English fiction. Everybody read it; there was a ‘Pamela’ rage, and Pamela motifs appeared on teacups and fans. Many praised the novel enthusiastically both for its liveliness and its morality, but some condemned the work as undignified and low, seeing in the servant girl’s story a pernicious ‘levelling’ tendency.

"I cannot be patient, I cannot be passive, when my virtue is in danger."Fifteen-year-old Pamela Andrews, alone and unprotected, is relentlessly pursued by her dead mistress’s son. Although she is attracted to young Mr B., she holds out against his demands and threats of abduction and rape, determined to defend her virginity and abide by her own moral standards. Psychologically acute in its investigations of sex, freedom and power, Richardson’s first novel caused a sensation when it was first 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 its hero.This edition incorporates all the revisions made by Richardson in his lifetime. Margaret A. Doody’s introduction discusses the genre of epistolary novels, and examines characterization, the role of women and class differences in Pamela.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

This is regarded as the first English novel. It is a long nutty book. Pamela is a commoner who stands up to a number of aristocrats. That's a good thing. She also is kidnapped, tortured, and abused. A young man attempts to rape her. (He's the guy who kidnaps her.) He tries to make her his mistress. Eventually, he gives up and tells her she can go home to her parents. She gets half way home and realizes she loves him and returns to him. That's a bad thing. It is also an epistolary novel. Most of the book is letters that are so long and detailed one wonders when Pam had time to eat or sleep. About a 10th of the book is a journal. And about 2 pages are third person narration. It is the least effective use of letters I have ever read. So, it is a rather absurd story not told terribly well. So why three stars? It is a first.

"The rest of the story" is nicely done. Pamela, now Mrs. B is continually upheld by those around her for her virtue and many of her husband's set are drawn to her for it. As we watch them stay their life and family together they are faced with some challenges, but we watch as Pamela continues to manifest many good qualities of character. She learns about household and spousal management and the importance of communication. She also contemplates the education and rearing of children.

Some of the ideals may be outdated in our more gender equal society, but many of the virtues Pamela displays and the lessons she learns can be just as applicable today in a variety of relationships.

Great textbook at a great price!

Gift requested by my son. Way above my pay grade:). Very appreciative.
  • Cerar
Very long, but intriguing. Charming, and sometimes a bit confusing because of the unique way of expression in that time.

Copy arrived earlier than expected and in great condition. Preface and footnotes helpful for a novel that is often a slow read .Richardson was a favorite author of Jane Austen but not her literary equal !

I bought this book for a class called Sex and Intercourse in 18th Century Literature, which, might I add, is a BLAST. I would say that the first part of the book is a little nerve wracking but having finished the book, I can see why so much time was spent on it. Beyond what the book as about on the surface, there is a great deal of insight into class structures and I am actually doing a creative writing project from the point of view of a secondary character. If you are interested in literature from this time, you really need to read this book.
its a school book that my Daughter needed for a class - that's about all I can really say about it.
