Description

When Fielding described his journal of a voyage to Lisbon as "the production of the most disagreeable hours which ever haunted the author". He set out for Portugal in 1754, a year before his death, in the vain hope of recovering his health, Fielding was suffering so greatly from gout, dropsy and asthma that he had to be carried on board the boat. He writes of the daily events of the difficult voyage, the eccentricities of Captain Veal, the abuses suffered by the sailors and the deep despondency of his patience, stretched beyond endurance.show more
