"Human passion was Samuel Richardson's great theme. His novels reveal the conflict of human passion in all its aspects - love, lust, and suffering - and the attempt to achieve a virtuous existence. In Passion and Virtue, this conflict is considered and critically analysed in fourteen essays, all originally published in Eighteenth-Century Fiction, the leading journal for the analysis of fiction from this period."--Jacket.
