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

1,130 editions published between 1700 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 18,204 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 )

438 editions published between 1750 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 5,538 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 )

344 editions published between 1742 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 3,528 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
Tom Jones by Henry Fielding( )

293 editions published between 1749 and 2019 in 15 languages and held by 3,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Coleridge the plot of Tom Jones was, along with that of Oedipus The King, the most perfect ever constructed. Fielding used all his art and all the craft he had amassed as a successful playwright for the eighteenth-century London stage to tell this hugely entertaining story of a foundling and how he arrives, through sexual misadventures and elaborate disasters, to claim his legitimacy, his fortune, and his true love. Describes the foundling, Tom, who grows to be athletic, charismatic, generous, and filled with "the glorious lust of doing good" but with a tendency toward dissolution. He leaves home to seek his fortune and his real identity

172 editions published between 1811 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 1,384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

68 editions published between 1743 and 2018 in English and held by 1,356 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 adventures of Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding( Book )

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 )

73 editions published between 1948 and 2008 in English and held by 1,115 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
Histoire de Tom Jones, ou, L'enfant trouvé by Henry Fielding( )

173 editions published between 1750 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows the fortunes of Tom, a foundling brought up by the kindly squire Allworthy. Despite a good and generous heart, Tom's naive inability to resist a pretty face leads to his downfall and he is banished from the Squire's house. But when the girl he really loves, Sophia, runs away to escape from her arranged marriage to his rival, the despicable Blifil, Tom pursues her to London, embarking on a series of riotous and frequently amorous adventures involving a wonderfully rich gallery of characters. Not so much a rake's progress as the exploits of an innocent abroad, it is a splendidly funny and often touching odyssey in which good ultimately triumphs over the corruption of human spirit
