    Particular social evils prevalent in the day, and follies and foibles of human nature in general are effectively exposed. Although Fielding's description of his work as a "comic romance" or "comic epic-poem in prose" introduces the elements of parody and burlesque, certain qualities of the epic itself, and romance, do inject themselves into Joseph Andrews. Fielding also presents a different case to his readers at the start of the each part of 3 the book. As such, it was inevitable that his humour should involve satire and irony.

    It was in proving his worth as a horseman that he first caught the eye of Sir Thomas's wife, Lady Booby, who employed him now 17 as her footman. After this affair Mr. The Lady and the beau depart in disgust, but the peddler, having seen the Lady, is compelled to relate a tale. Tow-wouse, had always admired Betty and saw this disappointment as an opportunity to take advantage.

    While he endures these indignities, Joseph is trying to protect Fanny from being raped and working to maintain his own virtue, despite offers from the likes of the wonderfully-named Lady Booby and Madame Slipslop. Adams encounters Joseph, who is in the kitchen recovering from a riding accident with the aid of the Hostess. So Fielding attacks this concept of morality and satirise it. The Andrews identify her as their lost daughter, but have a twist to add to the tale. The only break in his contentment, and one which turns out to be significant to the plot, was the kidnapping of his eldest son, whom he has not seen since. It is the task of the novelist to convey the actual flavor of life, but there is a place for idealism as well as realism.
