The History of Tom Jones: A Foundling
"The complete and unexpurgated history of a young man of strong natural impulses, a good disposition, and no overpowering sense of morality. Fielding planned it as a 'Comic Epic,' and built the plot with care, a plot turning on the recognition of Jones's birth and on the fortunes of his love for an adorable girl. Life in the country and town in the year 1745, with a great crowd of characters of all sorts and conditions....Of the highest importance in the history of literature, as indicating the lines on which the modern novel of manners was to be written." Baker. Guide to the Best Fiction
