Der hier vorgelegte Text ist nicht nur die erste deutsche Übersetzung, die jemals von Henry Fieldings Kurzroman „An Apology for the Life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews“, kurz „Shamela“ genannt, angefertigt wurde, sondern die erste Übersetzung in eine Fremdsprache überhaupt. Das Buch erschien im April 1741 als eine satirische Attacke auf Samuel Richardsons Briefroman „Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded“, der seit seiner ersten Veröffentlichung im November 1740 in England eine Furore machte, wie sie in der Literaturgeschiche wohl einmalig ist, und auch auf dem Festland hohe Wellen schlug.

Tom Jones – Zwischen Bett und Galgen ist eine Oscar-prämierte britische Filmkomödie aus dem Jahr 1963. Es handelt sich um eine Adaption von Henry Fieldings Roman Tom Jones – Die Geschichte eines Findelkindes (engl. The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling) von 1749. Der Film war eine der erfolgreichsten und von der Kritik bejubelten Komödien seiner Zeit. Regie führte Tony Richardson und das Drehbuch schrieb der Dramatiker John Osborne. Der Film fällt wegen seiner unüblichen komischen Machart auf: Die Anfangsequenz wird im Stile eines Stummfilms dargeboten, und die Charaktere durchbrechen häufig die Vierte Wand, indem sie direkt in die Kamera schauen und sich an das Publikum wenden. Die Geschichte beginnt mit einer Stummfilm-Sequenz, worin der brave Gutsherr Allworthy nach einem sehr langen Aufenthalt in London nach Hause zurückkehrt und ein Baby in seinem Bett entdeckt. Da er glaubt, sein Friseur, Mr. Partridge, und eine seiner Dienerinnen, Jenny Jones, hätten das Kind im Zustand der Wollust gezeugt, verbannt er sie und beschließt den kleinen Tom Jones wie seinen eigenen Sohn aufzuziehen. Tom wird groß und zu einem flotten jungen Mann, dessen gutes Aussehen und freundliches Herz ihn beim anderen Geschlecht sehr begehrt macht. Trotzdem liebt er nur eine Frau wirklich, nämlich die sanfte Sophie Western, die seine Leidenschaft erwidert. Allerdings ist Tom als Bastard gebrandmarkt und kann keine junge Dame ihres hohen Standes heiraten. Auch Sophie muss ihre Liebe geheim halten, während ihre Tante und ihr Vater, Gutsherr Western, sie zwingen wollen, einen angemesseneren Mann zu heiraten – einen Mann, den sie hasst.

Was sie zum expliziten, aber auch impliziten Verweischarakter von Fieldings Kapiteluberschriften auffuhrt, ist durchgangig plausibel, immer gut belegt und stilistisch-argumentativ sehr ansprechend vorgetragen., Abstract: Niemand kann jede Neuerscheinung auf dem Buchmarkt lesen. Die Programmvielfalt im Fernsehen ist schier erdruckend und jede Woche kommen ein Dutzend neue Filme ins Kino. In diesem Wirrwarr bietet es einen ungemeinen Vorteil, schnell erkennen zu konnen, was wichtig ist und was unwichtig, was interessant ist und was langweilig. Deshalb sind wir darauf angewiesen, in Buchern eine kurze Inhaltsangabe zu finden, mithilfe von Videotext oder Fernsehzeitschrift uber die Handlung von Spielfilmen informiert zu werden oder durch Uberschriften und Dachzeilen die uns interessierenden Zeitungsartikel herausfiltern zu konnen. Bevor wir eine Wahl treffen, wollen wir wissen, was uns erwartet und das Angebot mit seinen Alternativen vergleichen. Auch wenn die Masse der Informationen, die auf die Menschen im 18. Jahrhundert einsturzte, geringer war als die, mit der Menschen aus dem 21. Jahrhundert zu kampfen haben, erkannte der englische Schriftsteller Henry Fielding bereits damals, dass seine potenziellen Leser wissen wollen, worum es in seinen Romanen geht, bevor sie mit der Lekture beginnen. Auch die Leser des 18. Jahrhunderts konnten schon zwischen einer Vielzahl an literarischen Texten wahlen. Unter anderem deshalb hat Fielding all seine Romane in Bucher und Kapitel gegliedert und diesen Einheiten Uberschriften vorangestellt. In Tom Jones (1749) wird die Funktion"

Epic Into Novel

Epic into Novel looks at Henry Fielding's adaptation of classical epic in the context of what he called the 'Trade of . . . authoring'. Fielding was always keen to stress that his novels were modelled on classical literature. Equally, he was fascinated by--and wrote at length about--the fact that they were objects to be consumed. He recognised that he wrote in an age when an author had to consider himself 'as one who keeps a public Ordinary, at which all persons are welcome for their Money.' In describing his work, he alludes both to Homeric epic and to contemporary cookery books. This tension in Fielding's work has gone unexplored, a tension between his commitment to a classical tradition and his immersion in a print culture in which books were consumable commodities. This interest in the place of the ancients in a world of consumerism was inherited from the previous generation of satirists. The 'Scriblerians'--among them Jonathan Swift, John Gay, and Alexander Pope--repeatedly suggest in their work that classical values are at odds with modern tastes and appetites. Fielding, who had idolised these writers as a young man, developed many of their satiric routines in his own writing. But Fielding broke from the Swift, Gay, and Pope in creating a version of epic designed to appeal to modern consumers. Henry Power provides new readings of works by Swift, Gay, and Pope, and of Fielding's major novels. He examines Fielding's engagement with various Scriblerian themes--primarily the consumption of literature, but also the professionalisation of scholarship, and the status of the author--and shows ultimately that Fielding broke with the Scriblerians in acknowledging and celebrating the influence of the marketplace on his work.

Fielding's play Pasquin (1736), subtitled A Dramatick Satire on the Times, is a famous satirical attack on pantomime, which was then in vogue on the English stage. It is one of a series of dangerously political plays that led directly to the passage of the Licensing Act of 1737. The play is set on a stage during a morning play rehearsal. The actors are actually rehearsing two plays, a comedy and a tragedy, before an overbearing director and some lookers-on.

New material alone could justify any attempt to supplement the Fielding of Mr Austin Dobson. Such material has now come to light, and together with reliable facts collected by previous biographers, forms the subject matter of the present volume. As these pages are concerned with Fielding the man, and not only with Fielding the most original if not the greatest of English novelists, literary criticism has been avoided; but all incidents, disclosed by hitherto unpublished documents, or found hidden in the columns of contemporary newspapers, which add to our knowledge of Fielding's personality, have been given. The new material includes records of Fielding's childhood; documents concerning his estate in Dorsetshire; the date and place, hitherto undiscovered, of that central event in his life, the death of his beloved wife, whose memorial was to be the imperishable figure of "Sophia Western"; letters, now first published, adding to our knowledge of his energies in social and legislative reform, and of the circumstances of his life; many extracts from the columns of the daily press of the period; notices, hitherto overlooked, from his contemporaries; and details from the unexplored archives of the Middlesex Records concerning his strenuous work as a London magistrate. The few letters by Fielding already known to exist have been doubled in number; and a reason for the extraordinary rarity of these letters has been found in the unfortunate destruction, many years ago, of much of his correspondence. The charm of the one intimate letter that we possess from the pen of the 'Father of the English Novel,' that written to his brother John, during the voyage to Lisbon, enhances regret at the loss of these letters. Among the contemporary prints now first reproduced that entitled the Conjurors is of special interest, as being the only sketch of Fielding, drawn during his lifetime, known to exist. Rough as it is, the characteristic figure of the man, as described by his contemporaries and drawn from memory in Hogarth's familiar plate, is perfectly apparent. The same characteristics may be distinguished in a small figure of the novelist introduced into the still earlier political cartoon, entitled the Funeral of Faction. Such in brief are the reasons for the existence of this volume. It remains to express my warmest acknowledgment of Mr Austin Dobson's unfailing counsel and assistance. My thanks are also due to Mr Ernest Fielding for permission to reproduce the miniature which appears as the frontispiece; to Mr Aubrey Court, of the House of Lords; to Mr E. S. W. Hart, for his help throughout the necessary researches among the Middlesex Records; to Mrs Deane of Gillingham; and to Mr Frederick Shum of Bath. And I am indebted to Mr Sidney Colvin, Keeper of the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, in regard to almost every one of the thirty-two rare prints and cartoons now reproduced.
