From Harper's introduction: "Although Joseph Andrews holds the title role, the misadventures, the homely philosophy and the native simplicity of his companion Parson Adams are the features that have most endeared the book to the successive generations of readers. Under Fielding's magic touch Parson Adams became one of the best known characters in all literature -- always getting into embarrassing scrapes, and always managing somehow, by the timely intervention of destiny, philosophy, good luck, or Fielding's ingenuity, to get out of them."
