Summary, etc.: Shamela is a bawdy, spirited, and hilarious response to Samuel Richardson's hugely popular 1740 novel, Pamela. In a pointed satire, Shamela, which happens to be the real name of Richardson's Pamela, reveals the ulterior motives behind the events that took place in Pamela. Shamela is unlike the virtuous young lady portrayed in Richardson's novel, and she takes command of her master, Squire Booby. She has planned it all out from the start and is determined to entrap her master into marriage.
