Joseph is Pamela's brother, and he is as much tormented by the devotion of a certain widow. as was Pamela by the attentions of her persecutor. Fielding had more ability to make his characters seem real than Richardson, but he was not the superior of the publisher in delicate strokes and careful attention to details.
Within thirteen years after the appearance of Pamela, Richardson wrote two more novels, Sir Charles Grandison and his best work, Clarissa, often, though wrongly, called Clarissa Harlowe.
