Abstract:

The Don Quixote of 18th century England. 'Adams dealt him so sound a compliment over his face with his fist, that the blood immediately gushed out of his nose in a stream. The Host being unwilling to be outdone in courtesy, especially by a person of Adams's figure, returned the favour with so much gratitude, that the parson's nostrils likewise began to look a little redder than usual.' Inspired by the masterpiece Don Quixote de la Mancha, Henry Fielding, in his satirical novel Joseph Andrews, mocks the 18th,century English society and its high-praised heroic writings of the time by creating a naive dreamer much like Don Quixote. After being dismissed by the widow of his former master who tried to court him unsuccessfully, Andrews sets up on a journey to find the love of his life, Fanny. In his journey, he meets faithful friends as well as many shams, thieves, and vile enemies.
