Bless you Bob for mentioning this literature. I recently fell back in
love with 18'th century English lit, after paying little attention since
university days, oh, about 123 years ago.  Anyway, I bought and read
Fielding's "Joseph Andrews" and I laughed and was infuriated by equal
turns.  The blatant and overt distortions of personalities allowed
Fielding to turn people's behavior inside out so that it was right up
close and it mostly stank.  A brilliant satirist.  I also bought a
university level book that had a bunch of scholarly essays on the works
of Swift, another genius.  My interest actually started a bit more than
a year ago when I suddenly had to know everything about Samuel Johnson.
So, I got two huge bio's, recent scholarship and read to my hearts
content.  That whole era of literature is so deeply rich and I encourage
younger folk to explore it.
Kind regards,
Fred Houpt
