Additional Info

This is Fielding's satire on "virtue in peril." A young virtuous male is being pursued and tries to keep his honor unsullied for the lovely maiden he wants to marry. Pure Joseph is besieged by high and low born females in 18th century England. There's also Parson Adams, a sort of plump Don Quixote of a clergyman, and Lady Booby, a lively widow trying her best to stoop to conquer her handsome footman.
