    Ably edited by Henry Knight Miller this first volume of Fielding's miscellanies is a grab bag of genres which nevertheless has unity of theme than one might initially have anticipated Fielding basically emptied his desk drawer for anything to fill these volumes out especially this first So naturally there is some weaker material here especially the early verse Fielding is a better playwright than poet and better novelist than either This first volume demonstrates the wisdom of his having left poetry for prose Despite their weaknesses some of the poems have links to themes in the prose Thus Of True Greatness and Of Good Nature broach themes taken up with verve in the essays The real strength of this first volume lies in two essays principally An Essay on Conversation and An Essay on the Knowledge of the Characters of Men Naturally these have both been mined for clues as to how to think about Tom Jones or Amelia but they stand on their own merits both as thoughtful explorations as well as revelations of the author's way of thinking There are minor pleasures to be had elsewhere in the volume though these strike me as the high points
