...ce. There wasn’t much music, it was mostly sound effects to add comedy to the scene. I did like how Mr. Peterson had the party music when they were all at the dance party. The design of the play was very simple. All of the art I saw on stage was the doors with playing card designs on them. The big design I really thought was the best was the wooden doors and revolving beds. That really shortened the scene changes. The conventions were pretty solid compared to other plays I saw. I liked when they shot towards the audience and a pheasant fell from the cat walk like they actually shot it out of the sky. I was a little surprised when Jones came off the stage to pick up the pheasant. Overall the whole artistic quality and contributions was put well in this play and the actors really made it believable for the audience. I am ready for the next play Butler has to perform.

- Henry Fielding felt great concern towards the embellished stylization of epic novels, and in order to relay his critiques of this popularized genre, he constructed an epic parody to reveal the turgid grandiose nature of such works through a sarcastic spoof. Commenced with his mordant invocation of a muse, Henry Fielding’s epic parody, Tom Jones emphasizes droll concern with the classical epic style by christening Homeric epithets and personifications with a satirical twist. Henry Fielding dives into the Homeric form with extensive invocations and catalogues to the Muse.... [tags: Henry Fielding, parody, Tom Jones, plays, ]

- For this project, I will be summarizing three different articles that pertain to the argument that there is an apparent double standard for what is acceptable behavior in men versus women in Tom Jones.

The first article is by April London, entitled Controlling the Text: Women in Tom Jones.

- ... While members of the uppermost class are often depicted in literature as compassionless and stingy, Fielding’s use of generous, righteous diction purposefully defies this stereotype in his characterization of Mr. Allworthy. Even as a squire, Allworthy ironically remains the only character in the excerpt to feel any sort of sympathy toward the infant he discovers. Because “good nature [is] always the ascendant in his mind,” Allworthy is able to fully appreciate the “beauty of [the child’s] innocence.” His maternal compassion for the infant characterizes him as unusually generous and caring for a man of his wealth, and urges readers to reconsider the prejudices surrounding class and social...

- THE OUTCAST Sadie Jones He put his hand onto the cold glass pane. He felt far away from himself. He imagined putting his fist through it and the jagged hole in the pane and the points of the glass still attached to the wood. He imagined dragging his wrist and his arm against them so they would cut into him. He didn’t think he would feel it. He pictured putting his face through the glass and wondered if he would feel all the pieces cut him. He closed his eyes to stop imagining it, but it was the same, picturing the glass going into him, needing to do it.... [tags: Sadie Jones]

- English Literature I The formal well-organized structure of The History of Tom Jones contributes greatly to the intricate plot inside, and the novel as an overall piece of work. Henry Fielding contrived the blueprint of the book in its many clearly separated segments extremely well, making it equally as important as the plot. Tom Jones is deliberately and clearly divided into its separate parts. Through these parts he is capable of paralleling two types of stories in one single novel, along with bringing forth symmetries and balances in the division, and in the setting and plot....

- Tom Jones Tom Jones, by Henry Fielding is a novel that is identical to a soap opera. This book deals with everything from treachery to lust to deceit. He writes about a man and woman’s love for one another and that nothing can stand in their way. Class separates them and they will not let that stop them. “Acquired a discretion and prudence very uncommon in one of his lively parts.” This is a quote from Squire Allworthy to Tom. I believe that Fielding’s purpose in writing this novel was purely to entertain.... [tags: Essays Papers]

- An Analysis of Uncle Tom's Cabin "The book, Uncle Tom's Cabin, is thought of as a fantastic, even fanatic, representation of Southern life, most memorable for its emotional oversimplification of the complexities of the slave system," says Gossett (4). Harriet Beecher Stowe describes her own experiences or ones that she has witnessed in the past through the text in her novel. She grew up in Cincinnati where she had a very close look at slavery. Located on the Ohio River across from the slave state of Kentucky, the city was filled with former slaves and slaveholders.... [tags: Uncle Tom's Cabin Essays]

- One of the central themes in Tom Jones deals with the conflict between parental authority and individual choice in matters of love and marriage. As a related topic, I'm looking to explore the ways in which Fielding portrays the relationship and dialectic between love and free will. I intend to show that when ideas of love are conveyed or emotionally expressed by certain characters in the novel toward others, they are accompanied by, and frequently interconnected with, the question of autonomy and self-determination....

- The Emperor Jones In Eugene O'Neil's play, The Emperor Jones, he presents a crucial lesson to mankind: one should not pretend to be someone who he is not. Multiple repercussions may occur to someone who denies their background and race. For example, in The Emperor Jones, the character, Brutus Jones, dissembles as a free white man (Jones was really black and was supposed to be in slavery during that time). Because of Jones' denial, he encounters numerous illusions in the forest of his black heritage, which haunt him until he is finally killed by his natives, under the accusation of an insurgence against his people....
