Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding( Book )

16 editions published between 1910 and 1977 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph, a footman in eighteenth-century England, must protect his virtue from the advances of several women, including Lady Booby, and Betty, a chambermaid." *** "With 'Shamala, ' published in 1741, Fielding set about exposing by brilliant parody the more vulnerable aspects of Samuel Richardson's phenomenally successful 'Pamela.' In the following year he offered, quite deliberately, his own alternative conception of art and purpose of the novel: 'Joseph Andrews' achieved immediate popularity. The story of Joseph's dogged determination, against all odds, cling to his virtue is almost incidental in one of the richest, sanest, funniest and most attractive novels in the language. Drawn, as Fielding says, in imitation of Cervantes, its Don Quixote is the unforgettable Parson Adams -- the unique embodiement of a vigorous, innocent and rational enjoyment of life and the first great comic character in fiction."
