Summary
"Samuel Richardson (1689-1761) was an established master printer when, at the age of 51, he published his first novel, Pamela, and immediately became one of the most influential and admired writers of his time. Not only were all Richardson's novels written in epistolary form: he was also a prolific letter-writer himself. This volume in the first ever full edition of Richardson's correspondence includes his letters to and from Aaron Hill, the poet, dramatist and entrepreneur (1685-1750). Hill was Richardson's earliest literary friend and advisor as he embarked on a new career as a novelist. This correspondence offers fascinating insight into the compositional processes not just of the two Pamela novels, but of Richardson's later novels Clarissa and The History of Sir Charles Grandison. The volume also contains Richardson's correspondence with Hill's three literary daughters, which forms an invaluable chapter in the history of women's writing and literary criticism"--
"Aaron Hill occupies a special place among Samuel Richardson's correspondents. He was Richardson's earliest literary friend; and although Richardson later censored the unguarded expressions of emotion which coloured their correspondence ('All Mr Hill's Praises too warm, and should be lowered greatly'), he confessed that 'no Man Ever had a more expanded Heart, and truer Friendship, nor more Sincerity'.1 Hill and Richardson met in the early 1720s when Richardson acted as the printer for Hill's periodical The Plain Dealer (23 March 1724 to 7 May 1725) and some of his other pieces.2 Richardson was at this stage a businessman and successful printer"--
