Henry Fielding Quotes

Henry Fielding (1707 – 1754) was an English novelist and playwright. After attending Eton College he hoped to study classics and law, but a lack of money turned his attention to writing for the theater. He eventually became a barrister but continued to write satire, based on political corruption, in the form of newspaper articles. Changing times found him a trusted supporter of the government, and in 1748 he was appointed London’s chief magistrate. Of his many and varied works, Fielding’s novel The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling (1749), is considered his greatest.
