"Surging with verbal, sexual, and martial energy, The Adventures of Roderick Random opens a window on life, love, and war in the eighteenth century. The hero battles his way from poverty and neglect to make his mark as a doctor, writer, fighter, and lover. His adventures take us across the world, from England and France to the Caribbean, Africa, and Latin America. One of the first truly global novels, it casts light on nearly every aspect of its time -- imperialism, gender relations, slavery, urban life, colonial warfare, commerce, politics, the professions, high society, and the Hogarthian underworld."--Jacket flap

Smollett's Scottish satire on human cruelty, inanity and voracity, first published in 1751. It is the story of luck and bad luck of the egotistical "Peregrine Pickle", who was discarded by his parents and hated by his brother. He is educated at Oxford and journeys to France.

The life and adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves by T Smollett( Book )

46 editions published between 1762 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novel, Smollett's shortest, differs stylistically from his previous works. The most attractive of his heroes, Sir Launcelot is virtuous and strange, and he is surrounded by a Smollettian menagerie whose various jargons are part of this novel's linguistic virtuosity and satire. Sir Launcelot's character is an English naturalization of Quixote. Although Sir Launcelot, is not the object of the author's satire, an idealistic madness is central to both characters. In Smollett's work the theme of madness is integral to the relationship between self and society as the work ponders both the constitution of madness and the alternatives to revenge."

This 1766 travel classic showcases Smollett's curiosity and flair for satire.
