Description
Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms. Widely regarded as one of the most influential English novels, Tom Jones centers on our hero, the young ward of a kindly Somerset squire. Good-natured, but wild and weak to the charms of beautiful women, Tom often finds himself in heaps of romantic trouble. Things only get worse when he falls in love with his neighbor's daughter, Sophia, who is promised to his pious but underhanded cousin, Bilfel. When Sophia flees her impending marriage and Tom is accused of a crime he did not commit, both make their way to London. There, Tom does not just find Sophia, but himself. As the mystery of Tom's parentage unfolds, so does the hope of a new future.
