First published in 1753, Richardson's third novel was immensely popular. Richardson draws on every kind of narrative technique in this intricate and logically patterned novel. He creates a work that is at once a novel of manners, a novel of sensibility, a Gothic novel--a variety of genres
that highlight his gift for witty character sketch and brisk dialogue.
