"Roderick is the boisterous and unprincipled hero who answers life's many misfortunes with a sledgehammer. Left penniless, he leaves his native Scotland for London and on the way meets Strap, an old schoolfellow. Together they undergo many adventures at the hands of scoundrels and rogues. Roderick qualifies as a surgeon's mate and is pressed as a common soldier on board the man-of-war Thunder. In a tale of romance as well as adventure, Roderick also finds time to fall in love."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays on the writings of Tobias Smollett by eleven scholars from Canada, England, France, Ireland, and the United States takes a fresh look at issues raised not only in Smollett's novels, for which he is now usually remembered, but in works such as A Complete History of England and the Continuation of the Complete History, which made him the most popular historian of England in the mid-eighteenth century. Essays provide new insights into Smollett's writings, and suggest additional avenues for scholars to explore. The volume continues the reassessment of the writings of one of the major authors of the eighteenth century."--Jacket

The adventures of Ferdinand, Count Fathom by T Smollett( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom is a novel by Tobias Smollett first published in 1753. It was Smollett's third novel... The central character is a villainous dandy who cheats, swindles and philanders his way across Europe and England with little concern for the law or the welfare of others. The son of an equally disreputable mother, Smollett himself comments that "Fathom justifies the proverb, 'What's bred in the bone will never come out of the flesh'." Sir Walter Scott commented that the novel paints a "complete picture of human depravity." --Wikipedia.com

CHRISTOPHER ANSTEY (1724-1805), THE NEW BATH GUIDE (1766): UN AUTEUR, UNE OEUVRE DU DIX-HUITIEME SIECLE CONNUS AUJOURD'HUI DE QUELQUES RARES INITIES. LA PREMIERE PARTIE DE CETTE THESE RETRACE LES GRANDES LIGNES DE LA VIE D'ANSTEY, "SQUIRE" DE TRUMPINGTON (ET ETUDIE EN PARTICULIER SES RAPPORTS AVEC LA VILLE D'EAUX DE BATH) EN ESSAYANT DE CERNER SA PERSONNALITE (ON Y RETROUVE LES TRAITS DU SANGUIN ET DE L'HONNETE HOMME), ANALYSE LE NEW BATH GUIDE ET REPLACE AUTEUR ET OEUVRE DANS L'HISTOIRE LITTERAIRE. LE NEW BATH GUIDE SE COMPOSE DE QUINZE LETTRES EN VERS ET D'UN EPILOGUE: LES EPISTOLIERS VENUS A BATH Y TROUVER LA GUERISON A DES MAUX PHYSIQUES EN REPARTENT RUINES ET MURS ALORS POUR UNE REGENERATION. DANS LE NEW BATH GUIDE SE TROUVENT REUNIS TROIS GENRES LITTERAIRES: SATIRIQUE, EPISTOLAIRE ET POETIQUE. LA STRATEGIE SATIRIQUE D'ANSTEY (EMPLOI DE L'"INDIRECTION" DU "MOCK-HEROIC" DE LA PARODIE, DE L'IRONIE ET D'AUTRES PROCEDES PUREMENT COMIQUES), SON UTILISATION DU GENRE EPISTOLAIRE ET DU GENRE POETIQUE (EN PARTICULIER L'EMPLOI DE L'ANAPESTE) SERONT ANALYSEES. LE BUT D'ANSTEY EST CELUI D'UN MORALISTE QUI VEUT DENONCER LES VICES DE SON TEMPS A TRAVERS UN TABLEAU DE LA VIE A BATH, LIEU SATIRIQUE PAR EXCELLENCE CAR ETANT A LA FOIS CENTRE DE CURE LIEU DE LOISIRS ET VILLE RELIGIEUSE ET SE VOULANT L'EXPRESSION D'UN IDEAL DIT DE "RUS IN URBE".
