Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140431144, Mass Market Paperback)Henry Fielding's comic novel "Joseph Andrews" was originally published in 1742 in two volumes. A takeoff on Samuel Richardson's "Pamela," it follows Pamela's brother Joseph in the model of the Tory satirists of the previous generation. Although begun as a parody, it became an accomplished novel and marks the beginning of Fielding's career as a serious novelist.
