Preached up for its morality, and denounced as pornography in disguise, this book vividly describes a young servant's long resistance to the attempts of her predatory master to seduce her. Based on the original text of 1740, from which Richardson later retreated in a series of defensive revisions, this edition makes available the version of Pamela that aroused such widespread controversy on its first appearance.
