Pamela was a real twist in the world of literature and was a resounding success all over Europe. Its main merit is likely to have given birth not only epistolary novel (Rousseau) but Fielding gave two satirical suites: The Adventures of Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones. We know that Diderot raved about this novel. Pamela is a novel of manners and romance novel whose imprint on the literature of the eighteenth is permanent and indelible. It is often regarded as the first novel of manners bourgeois and this move places the action of the aristocracy to the bourgeoisie had an enormous impact. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
