Like Pamela, Evelina is an epistolary novel. Unlike Pamela, this novel is consistently epistolary, and some letters are written by characters other than the titular protagonist. In Evelina, we read a number of letters about Evelina before we get to hear her distinctive voice directly. What information do the letters between Rev. Villars and Lady Howard convey about Evelina? How would you read her first letter to Rev. Villars differently if it wasn't preceded by this correspondence?
Deadline: Tuesday (11/1), start of class.
