Henry Fielding by Henry Fielding
Book DescriptionThis is the first of three volumes representing the only modern edition of Fielding's dramatic works. Most of these plays have not appeared in print for a century, and never previously in edited form. Fielding came to the novel-writing for which he is best known after an important first career in professional theatre. He wrote twenty-eight plays, including comedies, satiric extravaganzas, and ballad operas. He was the leading playwright of his generation, an experimentalist and entrepreneur in a cheerfully mocking form of drama journalistically devoted to contemporary experience, culture, and politics. This volume presents the first seven of these plays in a critical unmodernized edition based on the original texts, with explanatory notes and commentary on sources, stage history, and critical reception, as well as appendices accounting for textual variation, bibliography, and musical sources.

Books By Author Henry Fielding
Tragedy of Tragedies, Paperback (April 2013)

Tom Jones, Paperback (August 2012)
A foundling of mysterious parentage brought up by Mr Allworthy on his country estate, Tom Jones is deeply in love with the seemingly unattainable Sophia Western, the beautiful daughter of the neighbouring squire - though he sometimes succumbs to the charms of the local girls.
History of Tom Jones, a Foundling, Hardback (June 2011)
The romantic adventures of a reckless yet personable young man are chronicled in what is considered to be the forerunner of the modern novel.
Amelia, Paperback (November 2010)» View all books by Henry Fielding
A novel that counters the traditional courtship plot of eighteenth-century novels with its portrayal of a marriage between an errant husband and his wife, and is ahead of its time in its use of fragmented narrative.
