Amelia, Paperback / softback Book

Amelia Paperback / softback

Edited by Linda Bree

Part of the Broadview Editions series

Description

With its combination of satire and sentiment, its focus on the seedy side of London life, and its unexpected shifts in tone, Amelia has intrigued and disturbed readers since its first publication.

Eagerly awaited by Henry Fielding's eighteenth-century readers of Tom Jones, the novel perplexed many of them.

Amelia counters the traditional courtship plot of eighteenth-century novels with its convincing portrayal of a marriage between an errant husband and his wife, and is ahead of its time in its depiction of the alienation of modern city life.Appendices include contemporary criticism and related works by Alexander Pope and Sarah Fielding.
