More Information
Henry Fielding was born on 22nd April 1707 in Somerset England and is generally regarded as the 'father of English literature' producing what must be one of its greatest novels Tom Jones. Educated at Eton he went on to have a colourful and 'adventurous private life which, interesting as it is, falls way beyond the scope of this page. His early literary efforts were often forced as a means of financial survival as a lack of success in law and his personal extravagances meant he was frequently in debt. After leaving England on health grounds Fielding died in Portugal in 1754 aged only 47. We would recommend reading one of the many biographies of the authors truly remarkable life for more information.
