The history of Tom Jones, a foundling by Henry Fielding( Book )

1,732 editions published between 1749 and 2019 in 22 languages and held by 20,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lusty tale set in 18th century England. Tom Jones is an orphan raised by the village squire who grows up to be a handsome young man with a way with women. He loves the daughter of a neighboring landowner, and falls into many adventures in pursuit of her, including duels, bedroom romps and prison!
Amelia by Henry Fielding( Book )

435 editions published between 1750 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 5,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its combination of satire and sentiment, its focus on the seedy side of London life, and its unexpected shifts in tone, Amelia has intrigued and disturbed readers since its first publication. Eagerly awaited by Henry Fielding's eighteenth-century readers of Tom Jones, the novel perplexed many of them. Amelia counters the traditional courtship plot of eighteenth-century novels with its convincing portrayal of a marriage between an errant husband and his wife, and is ahead of its time in its depiction of the alienation of modern city life
Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding( Book )

442 editions published between 1742 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 4,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Andrews refuses Lady Booby's advances. She discharges him, and Joseph--in the company of his old tutor, Parson Adams (one of the great comic figures of literature)--sets out from London to visit his sweetheart, Fanny. Along the way, the two travelers meet with a series of adventures--some hilarious, some heartstopping--in which through their own innocence and honesty they expose the hypocrisy and affectation of others. This novel began as a parody of Richardson's Pamela, but soon left that purpose behind and now is regarded as the first English realistic novel

The life of Mr. Jonathan Wild the Great by Henry Fielding( Book )

68 editions published between 1743 and 2018 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The real-life Jonathan Wild, gangland godfather and self-styled 'Thieftaker General', controlled much of the London underworld until he was executed for his crimes in 1725. Even during his lifetime his achievements attracted attention; after his death balladeers sang of his exploits, and satirists made connections between his success and the triumph of corruption in high places. Henry Fielding built on these narratives to produce one of the greatest sustained satires in the English language. Published in 1743, at a time when the modern novel had yet to establish itself as a fixed literary form, Jonathan Wild is at the same time a brilliant black comedy, an incisive political satire, and a profoundly serious exploration of human 'greatness' and 'goodness'

The history of the adventures of Joseph Andrews, and of his friend Mr. Abraham Adams; and, An apology for the life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews by Henry Fielding( Book )

69 editions published between 1764 and 2008 in English and held by 1,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry Fielding (1707-54) turned to novel-writing when his outspoken satirical plays so annoyed Walpole's Government that a new Licensing Act was introduced to drive him from the stage." "He began with Shamela (1741), a brilliant parody of Samuel Richardson's Pamela, in which a virtuous servant girl long resists her master's advances and is eventually 'rewarded' with marriage. Fielding's far more spirited and sexually honest heroine, by contrast, merely uses coyness and mock modesty as techniques to catch a rich husband." "Joseph Andrews (1742), Fielding's first full-length novel, can also be seen as a response to Richardson, as the lascivious Lady Booby sets out to seduce her comically chaste servant Joseph (himself in love with the much-put-upon Fanny Goodwill). As in Tom Jones, Fielding takes a huge cast of characters out on the road and exposes them to many colourful and often hilarious adventures. Yet at the heart of the book is Parson Abraham Adams, a man often duped and humiliated by those more crafty than he, but still a model of Christian charity, learned, generous, friendly and brave."--BOOK JACKET
