"Surging with verbal, sexual, and martial energy, The Adventures of Roderick Random opens a window on life, love, and war in the eighteenth century. The hero battles his way from poverty and neglect to make his mark as a doctor, writer, fighter, and lover. His adventures take us across the world, from England and France to the Caribbean, Africa, and Latin America. One of the first truly global novels, it casts light on nearly every aspect of its time -- imperialism, gender relations, slavery, urban life, colonial warfare, commerce, politics, the professions, high society, and the Hogarthian underworld."--Jacket flap
The adventures of Peregrine Pickle : in which are included memoirs of a lady of quality by T Smollett( Book )
415 editions published between 1700 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,586 libraries worldwide
Smollett's Scottish satire on human cruelty, inanity and voracity, first published in 1751. It is the story of luck and bad luck of the egotistical "Peregrine Pickle", who was discarded by his parents and hated by his brother. He is educated at Oxford and journeys to France. The novel provides a comic and sarcastic portrayal of European society. The novel is written as a series of adventures, with every chapter typically describing a new adventure
The adventures of Ferdinand, Count Fathom by T Smollett( Book )
108 editions published between 1753 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,694 libraries worldwide
The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom is a novel by Tobias Smollett first published in 1753. It was Smollett's third novel and met with less success than his two previous more picaresque tales. 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". The main character reappears as a minor character in Smollet's later novel The Expedition of Humphry Clinker. The novel's elements of terror and the supernatural have caused some historians of English literature to describe it as anticipating the themes of the Gothic novel
Roderick Random by T Smollett( Book )
134 editions published between 1845 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,534 libraries worldwide
The career of an apprentice who goes out in the world to seek his fortune
The life and adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves by T Smollett( Book )
46 editions published between 1762 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,087 libraries worldwide
"The novel, Smollett's shortest, differs stylistically from his previous works. The most attractive of his heroes, Sir Launcelot is virtuous and strange, and he is surrounded by a Smollettian menagerie whose various jargons are part of this novel's linguistic virtuosity and satire. Sir Launcelot's character is an English naturalization of Quixote. Although Sir Launcelot, is not the object of the author's satire, an idealistic madness is central to both characters. In Smollett's work the theme of madness is integral to the relationship between self and society as the work ponders both the constitution of madness and the alternatives to revenge."

Both in its original French and its many translations, The Adventures of Telemachus was one of the most popular and revered works of the eighteenth century.

Known for his novels Roderick Random and The Expedition of Humphry Clinker, Smollett was also a gifted translator. The Adventures of Telemachus was his final translation, and is one of the finest versions of the work. Long a disputed title in the Smollett canon, it is fully restored to his credit by Leslie A. Chilton
