Careful examination of the work of the most influential European novelist of the eighteenth century. Our primary focus will be on Richardson's three novels, *Pamela* (parts one and two), *Clarissa,* and *Sir Charles Grandison.* In addition, we'll examine supplementary primary materials (especially letters), evidence of Richardson's collaborative relationships with his readers (especially Aaron Hill and Lady Bradshaigh), the significant revisions he made to his novels over the years, and the important cultural criticism that has emerged around his work over the past fifteen years. Fulfills 1700-1900 requirement.
