About this product
- DescriptionSamuel Richardson (1689-1761), the English writer and printer best kwn for his epistolary vels, including Pamela (1740) and Clarissa (1748), had preserved copies of his extensive correspondence with a view to its eventual publication, and these volumes, edited by Anna Laetitia Barbauld and first published in 1804, contain her selection from his papers. Richardson became a printer's apprentice in 1706 and for the rest of his life managed a successful printing business in addition to writing his highly popular and influential vels. After the success of Pamela, Richardson regularly corresponded with leading contemporary literary figures including Henry Fielding and Samuel Johnson. The letters provide fascinating insights into Richardson's life and social activities together with contemporary opinions on his vels and the literature of the period, as well as discussions of current affairs such as the Lisbon earthquake, the education of women, and contemporary morality.
