The History of the Life of the Late Mr. Jonathan Wild the Great

by Henry Fielding

This novel is sometimes thought of as [Fielding's] first because he almost certainly began composing it before he wrote Shamela and Joseph Andrews. It is a satire of Walpole that draws a parallel between Walpole and Jonathan Wild, the infamous gang leader and highwayman. He implicitly compares the Whig party in Parliament with a gang of thieves being run by Walpole, whose constant desire to be a “Great Man” (a common epithet for Walpole) should culminate only in the antithesis of greatness: being hanged. The sound clips used in this recording were released into the public domain by Stephan at the website pdsounds.org. The intro music is called “LibriVox Theme–Detuned piano” and the outro music is entitled “La Bohème–Musical Box.”
