Henry Fielding was an English novelist and dramatist known for his rich earthy humour and satirical prowess, and as the author of the popular novel Tom Jones. He was sincerely designed to promote the cause of virtue, and to expose some of the most glaring evils, as well public as private, which then infested the country.
