Henry Fielding’s "Tom Jones": Homeric Epithets and Personifications with a Satirical Twist

- 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.

Henry Fielding dives into the Homeric form with extensive invocations and catalogues to the Muse....   [tags: Henry Fielding, parody, Tom Jones, plays, ]

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: Character Analysis

- Throughout the novel, in the book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the main character, Tom, had shown marginal improvement in maturity throughout the book. "SO endeth this chronicle. It being strictly a history of a BOY" (281).

Going about this, I believe that Tom showed maturity throughout the book, as his shenanigans got increasingly smaller and got replaced by acts of loyalty, making the reader question whether or not this is the same boy they read about in the beginning of the...   [tags: tom sawyer, maturity, Huckleberry Finn]
