Book Summary

An innocent's odyssey among the status-seekers, Joseph Andrews is the hilarious tale of a poverty-stricken, flagrantly handsome footman adrift in a world of blustering, powdered wigs and robbers, amorous dowagers and rough-and-tumble innkeepers.  Joseph is squired by Parson Adams--a Sancho Panza with a passion for brawls--through a maze of bedroom farces and mistaken identities to find himself suddenly and irrevocably acceptable.  The cornerstone of our realistic fiction, historically precise and eighteenth-century country manners, Henry Fielding's novel is an extravaganza of mortal affectations and vanities.
