Beschreibung

Samuel Richardson's Pamela (1740) is often regarded as the first true novel in English and a landmark in literary history. The controversy it inspired has become a standard point of reference in studies of the rise of the novel, the history of the book and the emergence of consumer culture. Thomas Keymer and Peter Sabor offer a fresh and definitive account of the novel's enormous cultural impact, examining the controversy as a market phenomenon, which combined disagreements about literary interpretation with commercial pressures, successes and failures.

Pressestimmen

'This excellent book derives from Thomas Keymer and Peter Sabor's previous joint work - The 'Pamela' Controversy ... Providing a wealth of new information in a crisp, witty narrative, it goes far beyond the previous commentaries on the subject of Pamela as a phenomenon of the commercial marketplace. ...this book's dazzling command of historical evidence renders in depth the whole complex dynamics of eighteenth-century cultural production' Modern Language Review ' ... a lively and informative analysis ... admirable and enjoyable ...'
