Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This volume completes the edition's coverage of Henry Fielding's journalism. They have a dense political background, featuring Walpole in depth, and should be of interest to historians studying the interface between journalism and politicians of the time.
Long Description
This volume, which completes the edition's coverage of Henry Fielding's journalism, provides a view of eighteenth-century journalism very different from the more genteel Tatler-Spectator tradition, and complicates the familiar image of Fielding the moralist. Fielding's contributions to The Champion are not only among his most energetic and intriguing works in the genre; they also have a dense political background, of interest to historians studying the interface between journalism and politicians of the time, as well as the role of newspaper publishers.
Main Description
This volume completes the edition's coverage of Henry Fielding's journalism, which occupied a far greater part of his time than has been traditionally acknowledged. His contributions to The Champion are not only among his most energetic and intriguing works in the genre; they also have a densepolitical background, of interest to historians studying the interface between journalism and politicians of the time, as well as the role of newspaper publishers. Walpole figures hugely, and the extent to which Fielding hints at the minister's life and activities is remarkable. Much of the volume's material has never been reprinted before. Explanatory annotations are full, as the characteristically allusive and topical nature of Fielding's writing requires. Appendices provide an analytical textual apparatus, and the editorial introductions emphasize matters such as genesisand composition, circumstances of publication, in addition to immediate biographical, literary, and historical backgrounds.
