      Revered by Dickens and Sir Walter Scott, Tobias Smollett is a writer seldom read nowadays, although he is responsible for some of the greatest literary works of the Eighteenth-Century. This comprehensive eBook offers Smollett's complete Brand: Delphi Classics. This authoritative textual edition presents Tobias Smollett's translation of Cervantes's Don Quixote in the form most faithful to Smollett's own intentions. It includes Francis Hayman's twenty-eight illustrations engraved for the original edition, Smollett's explanatory notes, and his prefatory "Life of Cervantes.".

    Tobias Smollett's novel, "The Expedition of Humphry Clinker," took me almost two months to read. The novel, a "sort of novel," as Dr. Johnson once said, I think of his own "Rasselas," doesn't really have a plot, which contributes to the pacing, which is slow, but highly enjoyable/5(5). Tobias Smollett develops the conflict between Peregrine Pickle and Godfrey Gauntlet, as the two characters struggle with their emotions, social norms and class issues, through the use of dialogue, and symbols of masculinity in The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle.
