Readers—many of them women—were throughout the century increasingly drawn to works of fiction that exhibited the moving spectacle of ‘virtue in distress’; one’s own ability to empathize with the misfortunes of fictional others was looked upon as a measure of the strength of one’s own ‘heart’ and of the vigour of those moral principles that in turn dictate the behaviour of our lives. Novels such as Samuel Richardson’s Pamela and Clarissa simply paved the way for later works containing even more provocative displays of (usually female) suffering, all designed to draw forth from readers as highly sensitized and as actively sympathetic a response as possible.
