|Plot Summary of Tom Jones|
|" Poor Tom! He just can't seem to stay away from romantic involvements! Henry
Fielding's classic novel “Tom Jones, the History of a Foundling” is as hilarious today as it
was when it was written three centuries ago! It is the story of a babe (Tom) left abandoned
at Squire Westin's manor. The Squire takes the child and rears him as his own, yet there
is no secret that he is a foundling. Tom grows up, perhaps the most randy, rollicking,
and riotious young man in literature! The ladies can't seem to keep their hands off hm!
For perhaps the first time in English literature, a prose account of these bawdy escapades
made its way on to the literary scene. The book is full of melodramatic hilarity and
Dickensian coincidences, and by the end of this novel, “all's well that ends well”!
