Lingdi Chen


Pamela is a well-known epistolary novel in the 10th century of England. It is written in the form of a series of letters, and has had a great influence to English novels and even the entire development of European literature. As the heroine, Pamela has strong equal consciousness and the spirit of revolting, and she takes her language as the tool to revolt. This thesis mainly analyzes Pamela’s equal consciousness, including her idea of master and servant, her self-consciousness and her language and letters which conquer her master Mr. B, Richardson’s view on Pamela’s consciousness of equality. All this manifests Pamela’s pursuit of equality. The whole thesis shows people a female image who is brave to pursue equality.
