Tom Jones, a foundling, is brought up by the kindly Mr Allworthy as if he were his own son. Forced to leave the house as a young man after tales of his disgraceful behaviour reach his benefactor's ears, he sets out in utter despair, not only because of his banishment but because he has now lost all hope of gaining the hand of the beautiful Sophia. But she too is forced to flee her parental home to escape an undesirable marriage and their stories and adventures intertwine.

Review:

The efforts of foundling Tom Jones to win the divine Sophia are thwarted not just by his calamitous susceptibility to so many female charms, but by all manner of misunderstandings, battles, misadventures and Dreadful Accidents. Through these picaresque romps, a twisting plot and a plethora of aptly named characters, including Squire Allworthy and tutor Thwackum, Fielding entertains us with the flaws, but essential goodness, of human nature. --Rachel Redford, The Oldie
