Book Description: Penguin Classics, 1982. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The real-life Jonathan Wild, gangland godfather and self-styled 'Thief-taker 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'.
