Teachers considering assigning the demanding, often-confusing novels of Samuel Richardson now have a fine in-depth gathering of analyses, opinions and insights from a group of contributors who know his works well. The first section covering 'Materials' surveys the editions of Richardson's works which are available and in print, from his letters to his novels, reviewing contents, adaptations and changes, and providing background history and detail on 18th century literature. 'Approaches' covers biographical and literary approaches to analyzing Richardson's works, with contributors suggesting ways to teach his novels in a thorough coverage teachers at the college level will most appreciate.
