An intertextual approach to Cervantes’ Don Quixote and Henry Fielding’s Joseph Andrews

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote (1605) has been an inspiration for the works of many artists, and Henry Fielding himself on the title page of his novel accepts that Joseph Andrews (1742) was written in imitation of the manner of Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote. Moving from this point, the ideas developed in this paper are an attempt to study the thematic and formal similarities between Don Quixote and Joseph Andrews with an intertextual approach. In this respect, this article explores such literary elements as satire, parody, picaresque novel, and the Quixotic character employed both in Don Quixote and Joseph Andrews comparatively and this study, hence, argues that reading Joseph Andrews through Don Quixote and a comparison between them will provide the reader with a possibility of new insights about the text.
