Two classic novels in one volume: in Samuel Richardson's PAMELA, a pioneering work of XVIII century epistolary literature, the titular character describes how her wealthy, rakish employer mounts a campaign of seduction... and her mounting temptation to give in. In SHAMELA, Henry Fielding satirizes the girl's business-like approach to trading her virginity for marriage, wealth and a place in society.
