A concise introduction to Richardson, wtih a close reading of Pamela, Clarrisa, and Sir Charles Grandison. Harris shows how Richardson communicated to women in their language, how he explored men's and women's roles in society and in marriage through his fiction, and how he shared his vision of the politically charged relationship between men and women. Her review of the parallels between details of Richardson's novels and archetypes like Eve and Don Juan illustrates the depth and power of the universal themes he explored. Changing ideas about gender and power in the 18th century are brought to life. Cambridge University Press. Originally published in 1987. This is a 2009 reprint. Paper. NEW. $32.00
