Pamela’s artless style of writing and speaking is appropriate to a story that focuses on such simple emotional drives as those that unite the heroine and Mr. B. It is not a decorous style; its virtue lies in its being as vital and real as Pamela is. By rendering the struggle over Pamela’s virtue in Pamela’s own humble idiom, Richardson executes on the level of style his moral and aesthetic claim that the soul of a servant-girl is as important as that of the princess whose virtue would be a more conventional subject for extended literary treatment.
