Summary
An annotated reprint of the fourth edition text of Henry Fielding's 1749 novel in which the bawdy young Tom Jones, believed to be the illegitimate son of a servant girl, promises to tame his wild ways, competes for the affection of his upper-class neighbor Sophia Western, and eventually learns his true identity; also includes seven eighteenth-century reactions to the novel and fourteen pieces of criticism from 1826 through 1990
