This book argues that the best approach to the aesthetic value of much literature of the past is by way of the deliberate meaning--implicit or explicit--that the author invites the reader to share. Ehrenpreis shows that subtlety and indirection do not militate against the didacticism and lucid style we usually associate with writers in the Augustan tradition. In a group of stimulating essays he examines how an eighteenth-century dramatist, essayist, poet, and novelist imply meaning about politics, religion, and sexual passion, focusing on their concept of heroism to elaborate these themes

It is still true that most readers of eighteenth-century poetry approach it by way of nineteenth-century poetry; they know what Wordsworth said about Pope before they read Pope. This means that when they read Pope and other eighteenth-century poets, they apply the wrong criteria. An eighteenth-century poet did not have to create the taste by which he was enjoyed to the same extent as a nineteenth-century poet was conscious of having to. The kinds were ready waiting for him, and, if the rules of poetic diction for the kinds of which he elected to write were properly complied with, the products

Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding( Book )
11 editions published between 1950 and 1979 in English and held by 225 libraries worldwide
"Joseph, a footman in eighteenth-century England, must protect his virtue from the advances of several women, including Lady Booby, and Betty, a chambermaid." *** "With 'Shamala, ' published in 1741, Fielding set about exposing by brilliant parody the more vulnerable aspects of Samuel Richardson's phenomenally successful 'Pamela.' In the following year he offered, quite deliberately, his own alternative conception of art and purpose of the novel: 'Joseph Andrews' achieved immediate popularity. The story of Joseph's dogged determination, against all odds, cling to his virtue is almost incidental in one of the richest, sanest, funniest and most attractive novels in the language. Drawn, as Fielding says, in imitation of Cervantes, its Don Quixote is the unforgettable Parson Adams -- the unique embodiement of a vigorous, innocent and rational enjoyment of life and the first great comic character in fiction."
