This collection, to which many of the world's leading authorities on Fielding have contributed, contains papers on all the major aspects of his work and life, as one of the great early masters of the novel, as England's best-known playwright in his day, as a political journalist and activist, and as a social thinker and magistrate. The important new scholarship assembled in this volume is designed as a tribute to Fielding on the 250 anniversary of his death in 1754 and the tercentenary of his birth in 1707.

The contributors to this book are distinguished scholars from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Canada, and include many of the world's leading authorities on Fielding's life and work. The contributors are: Robert Alter, Linda Bree, Simon Dickie, Bertrand A. Goldgar, Thomas Keymer, Guyonne Leduc, Thomas Lockwood, Frédéric Ogée, Ronald Paulson, Claude Rawson, Joseph Roach, Pat Rogers, and Angela Smallwood.

Claude Rawson is Maynard Mack Professor of English at Yale University.

'This [work] makes a very large contribution to scholarship on its subject, Henry Fielding. It is a remarkably well balanced collection of essays, exploring, as its title indicates, Fielding's contributions to all of the major genres in which he wrote. The editor, Claude Rawson, our finest critic of Fielding (his Henry Fielding and the Augustan Ideal Under Stress remains the single best book on the novelist), has assembled an outstanding team of contributors, and almost all are at the top of their form' - Peter Sabor, Canada Research Chair in Eighteenth-Century Studies, Department of English, McGill University
