Mr B resumes control: unlike Roxana's landlord, he does not obey the commands of a woman and goes no further once Pamela faints.
Cahill's theory of derivatization clarifies Mr B's assaults on the heroine as acts of ethically problematic derivatization rather than pure objectification Turner. But both are subject to episodes of sexual violence that follow contractual negotiation. In Roxana , the landlord's written contract of cohabitation and financial support is augmented by a silk-purse of three-score guineas, caresses, and protestations of love.
Roxana's attempt at deferral is brushed away by the landlord's smiles: a sign of unjust sex. Amy's subjectivity is stunted in this scenario: one of its side-effects being to render her unmarriageable — unlike Richardson's heroine, there will be no reward for Amy's maidenhead — and she will remain a perpetual accessory to her mistress. But the male actor is a mere extension of Roxana's domineering will. The child the landlord unwillingly fathers on Amy confirms not virility but emasculation — the offspring not of male lust but of complicity in Roxana's violence.
The permutations of Roxana's rape, then, can only be fully understood within a grid of sexual difference and power that accounts for both Amy's subjective presence and the shame and debasement of the male character.
