Synopsis

Henry Fielding is a figure of great significance in English literature and in the history of his own time. A hard-working Justice of the Peace in London, he was involved in establishing England's first police force, the Bow Street Runners, and worked tirelessly to counter social and criminal abuses both on the bench and by writing on legal cases. He was also highly involved in politics, editing three political journals in turn and writing satires and burlesques for the stage which were only cut short by the introduction of theatre censorship. It is, however, Fielding's novels which have preserved his name and reputation. They include between them almost all the range of his personality: classical learning, irreverent wit, desire to expose and counter social abuses, impatience with hypocrisy and pretension, knowledge of the dark undersides of English society and a typically eighteenth-century delight in high living.This edition is a facsimile of Leslie Stephen's 1882 edition of the Works. Alongside the complete novels and plays are less well-known prose works such as A Journey from This World to the Next and A Voyage to Lisbon, as well as Fielding's poetry, essays, writings on legal matters and political journalism. The contents of the volumes are as follows:Volume 1 ( pp.): Introduction to the Works by Prof. Alan Downie; Tom Jones, vol. IVolume 2 (558 pp.): Tom Jones, vol.
