The history of Tom Jones, a foundling by Henry Fielding ( Book )
1,189 editions published between 1749 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 19,931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fielding's classic novel chronicles the adventures of Tom Jones, who was abandoned as an infant and grows into a lusty, imprudent young man. Promising to mend his ways, Tom competes with an abusive rival for the affections of a wealthy squire's daughter, and eventually learns the truth about his identity
The history of the adventures of Joseph Andrews and of his friend Mr. Abraham Adams, written in imitation of the manner of Cervantes, author of Don Quixote by Henry Fielding ( Book )
512 editions published between 1742 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 6,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Begun as a parody of Richardson's moralistic and sentimental novel Pamela, Joseph Andrews grew under Fielding's hand into a satirical fiction in its own right. In the story, the virtuous hero is overshadowed by the rumbustious figure of Parson Adams
Amelia by Henry Fielding ( Book )
273 editions published between 1751 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 4,106 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 )
197 editions published between 1823 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 3,000 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."
The mock doctor or, the dumb lady cur'd. A comedy, as it is acted at the Theatre-Royal in Drury-Lane. By his Majesty's servants. Done from Moliere. With songs in each act by Molière ( )
177 editions published between 1730 and 2005 in English and held by 2,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tom Jones by Henry Fielding ( )
132 editions published between 1738 and 2010 in 13 languages and held by 1,959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tom Jones (1749) is rightly regarded as Fielding's greatest work, and one of the first and most influential of English novels. At the center of one of the most ingenious plots in English fiction stands a hero whose actions were, in 1749, as shocking as they are funny today. This carefully modernized edition is based on Fielding's emended fourth edition text and offers the most thorough Notes, Maps, and Bibliography
