The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews and his Friend Mr Abraham Adams Audiobook

Written by : Henry Fielding
Read by: Rufus Sewell

Henry Fielding’s first full-length novel, published in 1742, The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews and of his Friend Mr. Abraham Adams was also one of the first English novels. Fielding was melding and parodying the two major forces battling for control of the fiction of the time – the mock heroic, neo-classical tradition as practiced by Pope and Swift and the popular and populist fiction of the new novelists such as Defoe and Richardson. Richardson’s Pamela had just taken Britain by storm and following on the success of Fielding’s parody of the novel Shamela the story of Joseph Andrews follows Pamela’s brother in his journey as footman to the rather dippy Parson Adams. In style and form it imitates Cervantes Don Quixote, with the servant and master undertaking their major journey together, but the sexual adventures of the young Joseph Andrews and his sorely tested chastity provide the real meat of the book’s plot.

Rufus Sewell's voice lends itself perfectly to this audiobook download... we're sure you'll agree!
