From the Publisher: Written entirely in letters, this novel conveys the nuances and tensions only present in personal epistolary form. The virtuous but self-deceiving Clarissa and the charming villain Lovelace haunt the imagination as fully as Romeo and Juliet or Tristan and Isolde

Based on actual events, Pamela is the story of a young girl who goes to work in a private residence and finds herself pursued by her employer's son, described as a 'gentleman of free principles.' Unfolding through letters, the novel depicts with much feeling Pamela's struggles to decide how to respond to her would-be seducer and to determine her place in society
Clarissa by Samuel Richardson( Book )
41 editions published between 1748 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 671 libraries worldwide
Clarissa is of lower birth than her would-be lover: the Harlowes are indeed country gentry, but only recently enriched in the city, while the devious Lovelace is a young nobleman. This is a margin sufficient to breed suspicion on the one side and arrogance on the other; a story of male determination pitted against feminine principles and told in the form of letters. There is a post-script of approximately one hour to this story which for technical reasons we are unable to include
