Samuel Richardson (1689-1761) was a major English 18th century writer. He had been an established printer and publisher for most of his life when, at the age of 51, he wrote his first novel and immediately became one of the most popular and admired writers of his time. In 1733 he wrote The Apprentice's Vade Mecum, urging young men like himself to be diligent and self-denying. Written in response to the Epidemick Evils of the Present Age, the text is best known for its condemnation of popular forms of entertainment including theatres, taverns and gambling. He is best known for his three epistolary novels: Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded (1740), Clarissa Harlowe; or, The History of a Young Lady (1748) and Sir Charles Grandison (1753). The popularity of Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded was mainly due to the effective technique of revealing the story through letters written by the protagonist. Clarissa Harlowe; or, The History of a Young Lady has generally been the most highly regarded by critics; in it, Richardson uses the epistolary form with great effectiveness, creating characters that are psychologically convincing while reflecting on some of the most important moral questions of the 18th century.

I finally discover the secret of this book with so many two dimensional characters and so many cliches. A teenage girl wants freedom to find her way and her family frustrates her. (Spoiler Alert). She dies nobly. She forgives her family and her enemies. Everyone is very sad. The secret to the book in my opinion is that it tells the story of a teenager who wants her way. She doesn't get it. She dies. Then they are all really sorry! And she forgave the bad guy...I wonder if he gets what's coming to him? Reading nine volumes of a book when I am not a member of the intended audience may not be a good use of time but I feel a sense of accomplishment. Whether anyone else should do this is a matter of personal preference. I am glad I got done.

I understand that Clarissa is the longest novel in the English language. If one has patience and some appreciation of the elegant use of English, it is not too long. The outstanding feature of this novel as a work of art is the way Richardson vivifies each of the four main characters. They are completely different from one another and have widely different outlooks on life but each is defended as though he or she must be completely justified. Each has arguments and points of view that seem unassailable yet they could not be more mutually contradictory. It is a grand masterpiece.
