[From article]: Unlike the inferences of a vicious Fielding that the critics draw from Shamela or a gloomy Fielding from Jonathan Wild, those from Joseph Andrews uniformly depict him as a cheerful man highly conscious of his art. This emanation of Henry Fielding emerged from the criticism that focused its attention on its comic structure and its morality.
