About the Author

Henry Fielding (Sharpham, 22 April 1707 – near Lisbon, 8 October 1754) was an English novelist and dramatist known for his rich earthy humour and satirical prowess, and as the author of the novel Tom Jones.

Neglecting, or practically neglecting, sentiment as unmanly, and relying chiefly on humour and ridicule, Henry Fielding set out to draw life precisely as he saw it around him, without blanks or dashes. IIe was, it may be, for a judicial moralist, too indulgent to some of its frailties, but he was merciless to its meaner vices. For reasons which have been already given, his high-water mark is Tom Jones, which has remained, and remains, a model in its way of the kind he inaugurated.
