About this title

Synopsis:

Henry Fielding was a prominent 18th-century English writer and novelist. Fielding's books are known for their humor and he was also notable for having found the Bow Street Runners, which is thought to be the first police force in London. Fielding is now best remembered for classic novels such as The History of Tom Jones, Joseph Andrews, and Amelia. Joseph Andrews, published in 1742, is one of the first novels of the English language. The book centers around the adventures of a good-natured footman who is traveling home from London.

From the Back Cover:

Joseph Andrews, first published in 1742, is in part a parody of Samuel Richardson’s Pamela. But whereas Richardson’s novel is marked by the virtues of female chastity and the triumph of steadfast morality, Fielding’s Joseph Andrews is peopled with lascivious women, thieves, hypocrites, and general fools. As we follow the characters in their travels, what unfolds is a lively panoramic satire of mid-Georgian England.
