SHAMELA is a brilliant parody of Samuel Richardson's PAMELA, in which a virtuous servant girl long resists her master's advances and is eventually 'rewarded' with marriage. Fielding's far more spirited and sexually honest heroine, by contrast, merely uses coyness and mock modesty as techniques to catch a rich husband. JOSEPH ANDREWS, Fielding's first full-length novel, can also be seen as a response to Richardson, as the lascivious Lady Booby sets out to seduce her comically chaste servant Joseph, (himself in love with the much-put-upon Fanny Goodwill). As in Tom Jones, Fielding takes a huge cast of characters out on the road and exposes them to many colourful and often hilarious adventures.

Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms. What began as a parody of Samuel Richardson's Pamela became one of Henry Fielding's greatest works, and one of the earliest English novels. Joseph, at the age of ten, becomes the apprentice of a man named Thomas Booby. But as he grows into a handsome young man, he begins to catch the eyes of Lady Booby, Sir Thomas's wife, and her servant, Mrs. Slipslop. Shocked by their advances, chaste and innocent Joseph spurs their every attempt at seduction. Insulted by his continuous rejection, Lady Booby fires Joseph and turns him out into the streets. Freed from his lecherous employer, his sets off on a journey to visit his beloved Fanny Goodwill. On the way, his old tutor, the pious Parson Adams, becomes his travel companion. The road to Fanny is paved with adventure, and poor Joseph can't seem to shake his various suitors. All he wants to do is live a quiet life devoted to his love, but will he be stopped at every turn?

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Hamburg (Institut für Amerikanistik und Anglistik), course: Classics re-written? Pamela and Jane Eyre, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper deals with the analysis of Henry Fielding’s ‘Joseph Andrews’ (published in 1972) in relation to Samuel Richardson’s ‘Pamela’ (published in 1740). It has been claimed that Fielding wrote his novel as a response to ‘Pamela’, according to several allusions included in his novel ‘Joseph Andrews’. To describe the relationship between these two texts, the notion of transtextuality, coined by the French literary scholar Gérard Genette, will be used. Here the focus will lie on the so called hypertextuality, which describes the ‘overlapping’ of two different texts. The aim of this paper is to analyse ‘Joseph Andrews’ in terms of parody, which is one of the possible hypertextual operations that occur in literature. In order to do so, the notion of parody will be defined, mostly by opposing and comparing two recent accounts of the term. With the help of the knowledge of hypertextuality and parody, Fielding’s novel will be examined in detail. The main purpose is to find out whether Fielding parodied ‘Pamela’ or not. Therefore structural and functional criteria of ‘Joseph Andrews’ will be taken into account. The first two chapters will provide the fundamental knowledge that is necessary for the analysis of the novel in the end. The important literary terms and their definitions will be introduced. Afterwards Henry Fielding’s ‘Joseph Andrews’ will be analysed.

'I beg as soon as you get Fielding's Joseph Andrews, I fear in Ridicule of your Pamela and of Virtue in the Notion of Don Quixote's Manner, you would send it to me by the very first Coach.' (George Cheyne in a letter to Samuel Richardson, February 1742) Both Joseph Andrews (1742) and Shamela (1741) were prompted by the success of Richardson's Pamela (1740), of which Shamela is a splendidly bawdy parody. But in Shamela Fielding also demonstrates his concern for the corruption of contemporary society, politics, religion, morality, and taste. Thesame themes - together with a presentation of love as charity, as friendship, and in its sexual taste - are present in Joseph Andrews, Fielding's first novel. It is a work of considerable literary sophistication and satirical verve, but its appeal lies also in its spirit of comic affirmation,epitomized in the celebrated character of Parson Adams. This revised and expanded edition follows the text of Joseph Andrews established by Martin C. Battestin for the definitive Wesleyan Edition of Fielding's works. The text of Shamela is based on the first edition, and two substantial appendices reprint the preliminary matter from Conyers Middleton'sLife of Cicero and the second edition of Richardson's Pamela (both closely parodied in Shamela). A new introduction by Thomas Keymer situates Fielding's works in their critical and historical contexts.

Der hier vorgelegte Text ist die erste Übersetzung aus dem Englischen in eine Fremdsprache, die jemals von Henry Fieldings Kurzroman „An Apology for the Life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews“, kurz „Shamela“ genannt, angefertigt wurde. Das Buch erschien im April 1741 als eine satirische Attacke auf Samuel Richardsons Briefroman „Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded“, der seit seiner ersten Veröffentlichung im November 1740 in England eine Furore machte, wie sie in der Literaturgeschiche wohl einmalig ist, und auch auf dem Festland hohe Wellen schlug.
