Pamela Or Virtue Rewarded characters ¹ 7 Ological complexity but also a compelling and provocative study of power and its abuseBased 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. Maybe I m from another planet okay now I ve got the Julian Cope track in my head Most readers and Eng Lit students can t stand Pamela but I found much of it a page turner One morning in an hour and a half I read of Pamela than I had read in a week from slogfest The Good Soldier by Ford Madox FordAs a kid I used to obsessively re read a couple of books of saint stories this foundation must be one reason that I found readable in Richardson what many find unutterably tedious Pamela Andrews personality piety and ordeal is of a piece with any literal hagiography of martyrs There are zillions of academic studies out there on Richardson and unfortunately I haven t taken the time to search them comprehensively before writing this post but there surely have to be some tracing a genealogy from Foxe s Actes and Monuments and the like Unlike the Catholic martyrs I used to read about some of whom were also being imprisoned and pressured into marriage by wicked impious men or probably sex but these were kids books Pamela s immediate reward isn t heaven and Jesus nor the nice young vicar whom contemporary readers think would be a far suitable and less risky husband for her but a giant leap up the social and financial ladder in her post wars of religion Protestant capitalist world Her work ethic is rewarded This absolutely doesn t mean I see her as a grifter and gold digger along the lines of Henry Fielding s spoof Shamela Nope I totally believe Pamela and the premise of the other book even makes me a bit cross It s that 18th century England was a mercantile world where triumph meant material advancement and improved social status not spirituality and self denial of a sort idolised during the middle ages and sometimes the Reformation The economy has changed significantly but the social role of women has barely altered on a symbolic level a woman has the same old very limited choices of means to get ahead even if some other aspects of society are differentAn odd point in the novel s favour for me was its repetitiveness If most long books were this repetitive it would take me less time and energy to read them The repetition was also proportionally interesting to me because of the age of the book like Robinson Crusoe which I read a couple of months before it showed the English novel at a rudimentary stage and also what at least some people valued in the early to mid 18th century For instance it was religious than the image of 18th century England in late 20th early 21st century pop culture all bawdy banter and big wigs However Pamela s bawdiness is not always immediately obvious the novel was considered almost pornographic not just for scenes like Mr B s invasion of Pamela s bedroom but for things like the angle at which in an earlier chapter she fell on the floor Something so subtle that now almost no one would highlight it as erotic bar the creators of online GIFs of usually male actorsAs I ve said before in a few reviews of classic novels I love being able to get primary source social history in such a readable format and seeing how it was woven into people s lives It sure beats 300 year old newspapers Though sometimes its presence is partly unspoken instead knowing the history helps make sense of the story It s in things like Pamela s uandary about escape She isn t anxious for no reason she has as much to fear outside Mr B s house as inside with high crime rates the prevalence of footpads and highwaymen and the likelihood of hanging under the Bloody Code if he were to accuse her of stealing if she fled She can t be sure of finding safety anywhere Pamela may be fiction but the least realistic content is really the later part of the story The first half or so is one of a tiny number of engaging primary texts I ve ever encountered that show in detail what it was like being at the sharp end of pre industrial aristocratic power before there was any real hope of legal comeback against it Most of what has survived was by people higher up the social scale than Pamela or Samuel Richardson s family of origin Contemporary readers often blast Pamela because the author was a man writing a woman who embodied and propagated clich s of her time but the heroine is also a working class protagonist written by an author from a working class background eg It is entirely plausible that Richardson heard among his family and friends women talking about hardening their hands for domestic work and men too as his father was a carpenter and Richardson himself a printer One of the novel s main themes and arguments is that Pamela a working class young woman has a moral worth eual to the upper classes on the one hand politically revolutionary thinking on the other obvious in Christian doctrine and she stubbornly continues to insist on this despite great stress threats captivity gaslighting and other trickery and a near absence of social supportIt is possible that I liked Pamela and Pamela herself as much as I did simply because I read the 1801 text as found in the Penguin Classics edition Readers of critical editions of classics will be familiar with the nerdy note on the text about authorial revisions and different editions rarely of real import to anyone outside academic literature study Pamela seems to be one of the exceptions there are dozens and dozens of revisions for the 1801 edition which can when put together substantially change Pamela s manners and motivations and sometimes other characters too They make it a coherent and genteel text For certain values of coherent and genteel which were already old by the time Jane Austen known to have read Richardson was writing They make Shamela look outrageous in its disbelief in Pamela caricaturing her as a wily gold digger though I am writing this post metoo and perhaps I wouldn t have used as strong a word as outrageous ten years ago If I d known about the extent of the differences I d have got the expensive Oxford World s Classics edition which uses the original published text of Pamela Its critical material is also recent than Penguin s and the introduction is by Thomas Keymer whose intros to Tom Jones great and Robinson Crusoe good but not great I d read earlier in 2019 I d also thought I should go for a bit of variation and not read Keymer yet again On the whole I thought Margaret Doody s intro to Pamela dating from way back in 1980 had held up pretty well and it was refreshing to see feminist topics discussed without hackneyed contemporary buzzwords but with similar underlying meaningThe psychology in the first half or so of the novel is compelling and observant with numerous details about how Mr B gradually closes the net on Pamela invading her mind and space and about her increasing discomfort and alarm I found it fascinating and convincing as a portrait of how a person with secure attachment who is also deeply religious might respond to this abuse Pamela s relationship with her parents is fascinating as part of the history of childhood and the family It seems to put the lie to ideas that all families of the past this era were authoritarian She may be fictional but such relationships surely needed to exist to some extent then for it to be possible for Richardson to write one Pamela s ongoing communications with her parents and their support of her as an autonomous being in not insisting she must marry even in a straitened situation where it seems the best way out exemplify parents as a secure base They are mostly excellent parents apart from the one sad line where Mr Andrews said he would have had to disown his daughter if she had become a courtesan one suspects he actually might not have in practice and the degree of their class based deference to Mr B late in the novel is rather worrying Would they try to be there for Pamela if she needed to leave him But the novel tries to exclude the possibility of that happeningI can see Pamela being a tough read for undergrads who have not long left or worse are still stuck living in abusive homes Not only is Mr B s terrorising of Pamela a deeply effective portrait of intrusive types of abuse as opposed to neglect or occasional random rages but the reader also has to see alongside that how some young people have parents who are their closest confidantes and who are a refuge for them albeit constrained here by the limits of legal system against entrenched aristocratic power And it s not just isolated scenes that may be disturbing all this is continual over hundreds of pages it s a long time for someone to spend on stuff like this if they are finding it stressful I ve never been wholly persuaded before about exemptions in classes for this sort of thing and have a couple of Four Yorkshiremen style stories of my own But I can now easily imagine at my age if I were a tutor letting some student skip Pamela if they were finding the early chapters too much for a reason like this And if they are serious about scholarship would suggest they try it again many years later when they ve thoroughly processed everything If you are not disturbed by it on a deep level there can be a soapy telenovela kind of compulsion to the narrative with its metaphorically moustache twirling villain and saintly young heroine This is a book that belongs with trashy yet addictive bestsellers than with high literature Incidentally too many covers for Pamela like this edition make the mistake of not showing Mr B as young and attractive his appearance is a powerful but usually silent element in Pamela s inner emotional dramaIn the second half the psychology can seem uestionable Pamela is adored and accepted by the local gentry Shortly afterwards I even found a real life example showing the absurdity of this in The Housekeeper s Tale in 1825 an elderly suire Sir Harry Fetherstonhaugh married a young dairymaid Mary Ann the former dairymaid and her younger sister who took up residence with the household were shunned by some nobility for the rest of their lives and had a limited social life Pamela is unusually beautiful pious and intelligent but the steamrolling power of the class system is evident elsewhere in the novel the powerlessness of anyone to stop Mr B abducting her the Andrews deference to him so there s no real reason to think it wouldn t have also had some effect here regardless of her personal ualitiesAt first I couldn t uite fathom why the book went on for so long after the wedding But how sceptical were 18th century readers that someone like Mr B would change Even if they did also accept the developing conventions of romance fiction Were these extra chapters about showing that he did Something I read unfortunately I can t now track it down suggested that the narrative doesn t leave Pamela before she is financially provided for and legally agreed to have a degree of independence Any contemporary reader with a modicum of knowledge about abusive relationships will be sceptical that Mr B would change so uickly Even the reformed Mr B is by 21st century standards controlling much of it in ways that seem characteristic of his time however his reuests to read Pamela s private letters a continuation of the surveillance he previously put her under are deeply unpleasant and some 18th century ladies would have resisted this I am fascinated by the impossible intersection of history and psychology one can t go back hundreds of years to research and interview people to see how they would fit contemporary paradigms or perhaps need different ones and wonder if there is anything in the idea that because Mr B s most abusive behaviour towards Pamela was normal and socially sanctioned it is possible he was less psychologically disturbed in an underlying sense than someone behaving in the same criminal way in modern Britain and because of that it would be somewhat easier for him to change than one would expect from the contemporary person Other ways of living and behaving based on Christian piety were highly visible in his time and provided a ready model to follow One plus to the later chapters was the character s and therefore Richardson s surprising proto psychotherapeutic attention to the way Mr B s and his sister s behaviour had been shaped by their childhood and the implication that he needed to unlearn this to change just as Pamela continually ascribes her own morality and strength of character to her parents However I also can t forget one of my all time favourite books Anne Bront s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall 1848 which is in part a counterblast to over a hundred years of post Pamela popular romantic fiction suggesting that if a good young woman marries a rake he will changeEntirely unexpected amid the novel s psychological intensity was the hilarious to me farce in a couple of late chapters when Mr B s furious sister comes to stay The long scene between her and Pamela exemplified the sort of barbed banter associated with recent popular ideas of the 18th century eg in Sally Potter s film of Orlando and gave Pamela as a character a delightful new dimension as she comes out with lines like to the sister s foppish nephew Tinseled toy said I for he was laced all over twenty or thirty years hence when you are at age I shall know how to answer you better Mean time sport with your footmen and not with me Perhaps one should take seriously the later scenes between the sister and Mr B but for me her futile obstreperousness brought to mind Basil FawltyI m not going to recommend Pamela as it s abundantly clear that most contemporary readers dislike the book andor find it outright objectionable However there are a few of us maybe often those who were or are the students whom tutors asked if they d thought about postgrad who find it interesting even enjoyable in a way The widespread dislike of the book can bolster this encouraging readers to approach it with low expectations with low expectations one may sometimes be pleasantly

review Pamela Or Virtue RewardedPamela Or Virtue Rewarded
