Product Description


"Henry Fielding called Amelia his 'favourite Child' but the readers who loved Tom Jones, on the lookout for more jokes from this author, found the child unfunny and refused to take her in. Linda Bree's new edition of the novel creates an important opening for fresh appraisal of this innovative and challenging work. It is generously and lucidly annotated, with a discriminating introduction taking balanced account both of the historical context and most recent critical discourse. A superb addition to our resources for the study of the early modern novel as well as of Fielding." - Thomas Lockwood, University of Washington "Amelia, Fielding's last and in some ways greatest novel, gives us marriage as epic adventure, fraught with perils and blessed with pleasures, and Linda Bree thankfully gives us a new and authoritative edition. The text is well edited and annotated, Bree's introduction superb, and the maps, glossary, and appendices all very useful." - Adam Potkay, William R. Kenan Professor of Humanities, The College of William & Mary --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The description for this book is very misleading. There is no introduction as stated in the description and the book is full of typos (almost every other word is spelled completely wrong!) It does say very briefly in the item description that there may be typos but there are so many that you cannot read it fluently. Maybe the seller has once sold a different edition of the book but the current edition is certainly not useful for any possible purpose.

Excellent example of fiction writing a couple of centuries ago, This particular edition has extensive scholarly footnotes about anything that might be confusing to the reader.
