Richardson & Fielding : The Dynamics of a Critical Rivalry Hardback
by Allen Michie
The story of the Richardson/Fielding rivalry is a fascinating source of critical passions, prejudices, and often surprising interrelations between the literary tastes and cultural environments of the day.
This first book-length study of these writers' rivalry uses an adaptation of Hans Jauss's reception theory to survey how readers have used one author's work to set the critical standards used against the rival's.
