Anti-Pamela by Eliza Haywood

Young gentleman, have you found a perfectly innocent young lady who seems like your ideal choice for a wife? Let Mrs. Haywood show you what really goes on in the little vixen’s head.

Samuel Richardson’s Pamela gave us a scrupulously virtuous heroine who would make any sacrifice to preserve her innocence. Mrs. Haywood gives us the exact opposite of Pamela.

Or is Pamela really so different from Anti-Pamela? What lies behind that façade of virtue? Enter the sordid world of the Anti-Pamela, and learn “the Mischiefs that frequently arise from a too sudden Admiration.”

This new edition is taken faithfully from the original edition of 1741, with a new introduction by H. Albertus Boli.
