Содержание:

Introduction, The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews, and of His Friend Mr. Abraham Adams, An Apology for the Life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews

Описание:

Fielding`s great comic gifts were never better displayed than in `Shamela` (1741) and `Joseph Andrews` (1742). Both books were prompted by the success of Richardson`s `Pamela` (1740), of which `Shamela` is a splendidly bawdy parody. But in `Shamela`Fielding also demonstrates his concern for the corruption of contemporary morality, religion, politics, and literature. The same themes - together with a presentation of love as charity, as friendship, and in its sexual sense - are present in Joseph Andrews, Fielding`s first novel. It is a work of considerable allusive and structural complexity, but its ultimate appeal is in its spirit of comic affirmation, epitomized in the figure of Parson Adams.
