This article situates Carlo Goldoni's stage adaptation of Samuel Richardson's Pamela in the context of other stage versions in France and in Italy, focusing on the ideological difficulties presented by the interclass marriage that brings the novel to a happy conclusion. It then turns to the relationship between novel and play and discusses two aspects of Richardson's novel that show a particular affinity with the stage: its epistolarity and the representation of the emotions.
