Good Press, 29/11/2019 - 186 páginas
The Journal of a Voyage to Lisbon by Henry Fielding is about Fielding's personal experiences traveling to Lisbon, Portugal. Excerpt: "Your candor is desired on the perusal of the following sheets, as they are the product of a genius that has long been your delight and entertainment. It must be acknowledged that a lamp almost burnt out does not give so steady and uniform light as when it blazes in its full vigor; but yet it is well known that by its wavering as if struggling against its own dissolution, it sometimes darts a ray as bright as ever. In like manner, a strong and lively genius will, in its last struggles, sometimes mount aloft, and throw forth the most striking marks of its original luster."
