The foundling Tom Jones is found on the property of a benevolent, wealthy landowner. Tom grows up to be a vigorous, kind-hearted young man, whose love of his neighbor's well-born daughter brings class friction to the fore. The presence of prostitution and promiscuity in Tom Jones caused a sensation at the time it was published, as such themes were uncommon. It is divided into 18 shorter books, and is considered one of the first English-language novels.

A Romp Through The 18th Century

A long but extremely enjoyable novel; a comic and sexually open (for the time) romp through the 18th century. The central character Tom is a decent and generous lad whose good nature is taken advantage of as he is duped and disgraced by his evil half brother Blifil. Needless to say goodness and love triumph in the end and hypocrisy is revealed. Hypocrisy, both moral and religious is a central theme of the book which is full of delightful characters with suggestive and inventive names. It is one of the earliest novels in the English Language, a romantic comedy with a deeper vein of satire running through. Perhaps a little long for modern tastes, it nonetheless remains a readable and complex timeless classic.
