Over a nine-year period the young Fielding wrote more than twenty plays but his career as a satirical dramatist, lampooning the corruption and hypocrisies of Sir Robert Walpole’s government in plays like Tom Thumb and The Historical Register for the Year 1736 came to an end when the targets of his genial venom introduced the Licensing Act of 1737, bringing the stage under a stricter censorship.

Beginning with parodic variations on Samuel Richardson’s lengthy, moralistic fiction (Shamela and Joseph Andrews), Fielding soon became a master novelist.

Famously, he mistakes windmills for giants, and when charging them with his lance brings disaster, he blames the results on a magician who has changed the giants into windmills in order to deprive him of the glory of overcoming them. A funeral procession becomes, in Quixote’s mind, a troop of devils carrying off a princess, a barber’s basin the miraculous Helmet of Bambrino. All his attempts at living out the dream of chivalry end in humiliation and suffering. Yet the power of Cervantes’s narrative lies in the gradual transformation of Don Quixote, during the course of the novel, from a bumbling buffoon into a noble idealist, lost amid the brutal practicalities of the real world.
