Shamela is written as a shocking revelation of the true events which took place in the life of Pamela Andrews, the main heroine of Pamela. Oh dear, this is funny. Uploaded by librivoxbooks on July 15, I thought Pamela andres wild but that does not hold a candle to this.
Fielding would go on to become a prominent and important literary figure, and would even satirize Pamela in his more mature and developed work Joseph Andrewsbut Shamela was his first attempt at both literature and impugning Pamela.

You can make it easier for us to review and, hopefully, publish your contribution by keeping a few points in mind. I was under the false impression that parodies were relatively modern phenomena. You could practically see Fielding furiously scribbling with one hand and andrewe Richardson off with the other.
