Henry Fielding, a memoir, including newly discovered letters and records

B&R Samizdat Express, 15.11.2014
Biography of the 18th century comic novelist, author of Tom Jones. The Preface begins: "New material alone could justify any attempt to supplement the _Fielding_ of Mr Austin Dobson. Such material has now come to light, and together with reliable facts collected by previous biographers, forms the subject matter of the present volume. As these pages are concerned with Fielding the man, and not only with Fielding the most original if not the greatest of English novelists, literary criticism has been avoided; but all incidents, disclosed by hitherto unpublished documents, or found hidden in the columns of contemporary newspapers, which add to our knowledge of Fielding's personality, have been given."
