Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded is an epistolary novel by English writer Samuel Richardson, a novel which was first published in 1740. Considered the first true English novel, it serves as Richardson's version of conduct literature about marriage. Pamela tells the story of a 16-year-old maidservant named Pamela Andrews, whose employer, Mr. B, a wealthy landowner, makes unwanted and inappropriate advances towards her after the death of his mother.
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.
Pamela: Or, Virtue Rewarded (Penguin Classics). I read a lot of opinions about Richardson book. Someone said this book has witchcraft because you cannot put it down. A young man attempts to rape her. (He's the guy who kidnaps he. He tries to make her his mistress. Eventually, he gives up and tells her she can go home to her parents. Well something of that happened to me. At the beginning I was so disgusted that I put it aside and tried to forget about so much nonsense. However, after a while I began to wonder how that nonsense would end. I began to get addicted, could not stop until I finished.

By: Samuel Richardson. She rejects him continually, and her virtue is eventually rewarded when he shows his sincerity by proposing an equitable marriage to her. A Narrative which has its Foundation in TRUTH and NATURE; and at the same time that it agreeably entertains, by a Variety of curious and affecting Incidents, is intirely divested of all those Images, which, in too many Pieces calculated for Amusement only, tend to inflame the Minds they should instruct.
