0,00 MDL (0,00 RON)


Smollett's satire on human cruelty, inanity and voracity, first published in 1751. It is the story of luck and bad luck of the egotistical ''Peregrine Pickle'', who was discarded by his parents and hated by his brother. It provides a comic and sarcastic portrayal of European society.

The novel is written as a series of adventures, with every chapter typically describing a new adventure. Gripping!

About the Author

Tobias George Smollett (19 March 1721 – 17 September 1771) was a Scottish poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random (1748) and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle (1751), which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens.

George Orwell admired Smollett very much. His novels were amended liberally by printers; a definitive edition of each of his works was edited by Dr. O. M. Brack, Jr. to correct variants.
