Downie (English, Goldsmiths' College, U. of London, UK) brings together 18 revised versions of papers presented at the international conference held at the U. of London in April 2007 to commemorate the 300th birthday of Henry Fielding's birth. Scholars of English and literature, music, and law from Europe and North America explore his writings, including his ballad operas, poetry, political journalism, social pamphlets, and novels Joseph Andrews, Tom Jones, and Amelia. Others discuss his use of laughter, representations of sexuality, his career as a magistrate, and teaching his works. The book is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students, academics, and general readers.
