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, an epistolary novel by Samuel Richardson, was first published in 1740. Pamela belongs to the conduct book tradition. Aimed mainly at girls and young women, conduct books taught moral behaviour, social norms and the codes of sensibility. Here, Richardson employs the novel form to instruct through entertainment. Two of the most popular parodies – Henry Fielding’s Shamela (1741) and Eliza Heywood’s Anti-Pamela (1741) – portray Pamela as an experienced girl prepared to trade her feigned innocence for wealth and an elevated social position.

good she is to me,) I am very easy that I have so little to say to them. Not but they are civil to me in the main, for Mrs. Jervis's sake, who they see loves me; and they stand in awe of her, knowing her to be a gentlewoman born, though she has had misfortunes.

Richardson's over-wrought "Pamela" and Fielding's under-schooled "Shamela" combine in a wonderful two novels, dually packed for your enjoyment.

"Pamela", the precursor to Richardson's excellent but somewhat sluggish "Clarissa", details an innocent young girl, in the hands of a rogue who wants to ruin and rape her, but fortunately reforms through her unconditional love and they live happily ever after. Full of pages of hysterics, the novel was widely lampooned both in its own time and today for such scenes as Pamela's fear and trembling during a half-baked escape attempt when her passage is blocked by a horrible, frightful monster who later turns out to be...a common dairy cow. Pamela's motives were questioned widely at the time, especially when she narrowly escapes being raped, flees in a carriage to the safety of her beloved parents' home, but is coaxed back by a heartfelt letter from her would-be rapist saying that, well, he's changed. Back to the manor we go, then.

Fielding disliked "Pamela" with a vengeance, and his "Shamela" capitalizes on the flaws of Pamela, painting the virtuous girl as an uneducated grasping shrew who manipulates the men around her, or more accurately manipulates their lusts. The satire is biting, hilarious, and can easily be appreciated for its cleverness, if not for its motives.
