Tobias Smollett: The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle

Language:
English
Genres:
Travel & Adventure

Tobias George Smollett was a Scottish poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle, which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens. The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle is a picaresque novel by Tobias Smollett, first published in 1751, and revised and reissued in 1758. It is the story of the fortunes and misfortunes of the egotistical dandy Peregrine Pickle, and it provides a comic and caustic portrayal of 18th-century European society. Peregrine’s journey through Europe, his many debaucheries, and his final repentance all provide scope for Smollett’s satire on human cruelty, stupidity, and greed. Smollett also caricatured many of his enemies in the book, most notably writer Henry Fielding and actor David Garrick.
