"Roderick is the boisterous and unprincipled hero who answers life's many misfortunes with a sledgehammer.

Roderick qualifies as a surgeon's mate and is pressed as a common soldier on board the man-of-war Thunder.

The adventures of Peregrine Pickle by T Smollett ( Book )

Travel through eighteenth-century Europe with aristocratic dandy Peregrine Pickle, a hilarious character plucked from the imagination of famed Scottish author Tobias Smollett.

The history and adventures of the renowned Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ( Book )
178 editions published between 1755 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,409 libraries worldwide
Widely regarded as the world's first modern novel, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote de la Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, as they wend their way across sixteenth-century Spain. This edition reproduces the acclaimed Tobias Smollett translation; as Salman Rushdie declares, "To my mind, this is the only English rendering of the Quixote that reads like a great novel, a novel of immense daring, much wildness and many colours. It releases Don Quixote from the grey academic prison of many more recent translations, unleashing him upon the English language in all his brilliant, foolish glory." This edition also contains new endnotes.--From publisher description.
Travels through France and Italy by T Smollett ( Book )
217 editions published between 1766 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,291 libraries worldwide
In 1763, Tobias Smollett set sail from Folkestone to Boulogne. He would not return to England for two years, during which time he travelled extensively - and in a notoriously ill-tempered fashion - through much of France and Italy. Smollett, seemed 'determined to be pleased with nothing' and was 'sardonic, satirical and decidedly gloomy'. In Paris, everything had 'shrunk' and was twice as expensive as his last visit. Versailles was a 'dismal habitation'. In Rome, he felt that Michelangelo's "Last Judgement" resembled a mob; his inn in San Remo was more miserable than the worst alehou.

Un grand roman picaresque, ancêtre de "Barry Lindon". Avec Ferdinand, comte Fatham, cet écrivain écossais du XVIIIe siècle a peint un scélérat plus noir, plus révoltant et plus détestable que dans aucune de ces autres oeuvres. Par ailleurs ce roman est l'un des tout premiers romans à présenter un thème appelé à se développer : la peur.

In this philosophical fantasy, naive Candide sees and suffers such misfortune that he ultimately rejects the philosophy of his tutor Doctor Pangloss, who claims that "all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds."

When they all retire together to a simple life on a small farm, they discover that the secret of happiness is to "cultivate one's garden," a practical philosophy that excludes idealism and nebulous metaphysics.
