Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With its generous fomat and heavyweight line-up of contributors, the Blackwell Critical Biographies series has developed into an impressive body of biographical and critical appraisals, and The Life of Henry Fielding is a powerful addition." Review of English Studies

"Instead of dwelling on the life, Paulson (John Hopkins Univ.) provides learned and sensitive readings of all of Fielding's major works and many minor ones." "The comments on Fielding's attitudes toward deism and his relationship with William Hogarth are valuable. The scholarship is admirably thorough." "Recommended for collections serving upper-division undergraduates and above." Choice
