Description

Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded by English writer Samuel Richardson was first published in 1740. It is considered as the first true English novel, and tells the story of a young, fifteen year old maid called Pamela Andrews, whose employer, a wealthy landowner, keeps making sexual advances to her. The book consists of letters and journal entries that Pamela writes, addressed to her parents, telling them of her struggle to keep to her religious morals, but also to keep the approval of her employer. In it's time, Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded, was a best-seller, although it was criticised for it's apparent lack of morality.
