Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady is an epistolary novel by English writer Samuel Richardson, published in 1748. It tells the tragic story of a young woman, Clarissa Harlowe, whose quest for virtue is continually thwarted by her family. The Harlowes are a recently wealthy family whose preoccupation with increasing their standing in society leads to obsessive control of their daughter, Clarissa, who ultimately dies as a result.

This book, which won the University of Delaware Press's 1992 competition in eighteenth-century studies, argues that Samuel Richardson's Clarissa is constructed from three different plot structures. Law, Sensibility, and the Sublime in Eighteenth-century Women's Fiction.

Building upon the evidence that John Henry Newman's Parochial Sermons is a georgic (Lams, 2004), the current book defines and discusses the visionary georgic, a subset of the genre whose exemplars include Lucretius' De rerum natura and Wordsworth's The Prelude. Newman's visionary georgic defends Christian revelation against the rationalistic subjectivism that tended to displace religious faith by Wordsworthian self-exploration, leading to the Victorian redefinition of literature as secular scripture.

Indeed I passionately believe that Clarissa is a very contemporary book. Lams, Victor J. Clarissa’s Narrators. New York: Peter Lang, 2001.

Challenging the view that Samuel Richardson's eighteenth-century epistolary novel Clarissa is a shapeless sequence of letters, this book argues that the novel has an action structure consisting of five act-like movements that emerge from the round robin transfer of narrative dominance: from the interiorizing drama enacted on the epistolary stage first by Clarissa’s, then by Lovelace’s self-reflections on just-past events, to Belford’s more conventionally novelistic other-reflective narrative that ends the history. This book contrasts Clarissa’s use of soliloquy to achieve self-understanding with Lovelace’s employment of dramatic monologue to enable self-deception. Finally, Miss Howe’s and Belford’s performances in epistolary friendship are evaluated.
