    Malice, selfishness, vanities, hypocrisies, lack of charity, all is ridiculed as human follies. Tow-wouse forbids her husband to lend a shirt to Joseph who has been stripped naked and half-killed. Henry Fielding along with Samuel Johnson is considered to be the founder of English novel. Adams is prone to these errors because he is both literally and figuratively short-sighted. The character development of the protagonist Joseph Andrews is somewhat flat.

    Adams, like Fielding himself at the time of composing the Joseph Andrews book, is constantly in debt; fortunately, however, the same unworldliness that leads to these bouts of insolvency prevents him from despairing. With the party silent, they overhear approaching voices agree on "the murder of any one Joseph Andrews book meet" III, ii and flee to a local house. A blurry kind of humor also arises when Fielding tells us of the man talking of courage and bravery but he runs away at the mere mention of the danger, and of the catholic priest who after giving a wholesome lecture on the evils of money ends up in asking for some money from Parson Adams. Once a picaro, always a picaro. The story is told in a series of loosely connected adventures or episodes. Although everyone in the novel says that one mark of good man is to that it gives him real joy to help others.

    After another round of venereal disease, he debauched the daughter of Joseph Andrews book military gentleman; the young lady soon began a moral and psychological decline that ended with her miserable death in Newgate Prison. And the only person that helps him is the postilion who has absolutely no pretension either to virtue or to social superiority and who, we are told, is later punished or sent to Australia for some minor crime that is probably committed out of hunger. He sends his three of his men to go and kidnap Fanny, and they do so successfully. After the death of Sir Thomas, Joseph finds that his Lady's affections have redoubled as she offers herself to him in her chamber while on a trip to London. Irony and satire are closely related literary terms.
