This book argues that the best approach to the aesthetic value of much literature of the past is by way of the deliberate meaning--implicit or explicit--that the author invites the reader to share. Ehrenpreis shows that subtlety and indirection do not militate against the didacticism and lucid style we usually associate with writers in the Augustan tradition. In a group of stimulating essays he examines how an eighteenth-century dramatist, essayist, poet, and novelist imply meaning about politics, religion, and sexual passion, focusing on their concept of heroism to elaborate these themes

Joseph Andrews, or The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews and of his Friend Mr. Abraham Adams, was the first published full-length novel of the English author and magistrate Henry Fielding, and indeed among the first novels in the English language.
