He was, self-confessedly and happily, a poor pruner. Written in letters, the novel contains all the urgency and tension of personal communications set down to the moment, compelling our confidence but also our distrust.

Its rich ambiguities - our sense of Clarissas scrupulous virtue tinged with intimations of her capacity for self-deception in matters of sex- the wicked and amusing faces of Lovelace, who must be easily the most charming villain in English literature - give the story extraordinary psychological momentum. In that fatally attracted pair, Richardson created lovers that haunt the imagination as Romeo and Juleit do, or Tristan and Osolde.
