## British Novel

Question: -1. Comment on the significance of the Man of the Hill episode in the novel Tom Jones.

Fielding presents the episode as the elderly man’s “History” and “Story.” Fielding’s declared objective is to infuse Tom Jones with “his background” and “storey.” Second, the Man of the Hill’s storey – his entire life from boyhood to old age – is factually accurate. Isn’t that what history is all about? However, the term “storey” may also refer to a false narrative – something that individuals perceive and represent in their surroundings. The Man of the Hill himself tells the storey. Perhaps he’s attempting to justify his decision to live alone, cut off from the world into which he was born. As a result, he relates the storey, which is entirely fictitious. Consider now many of the most essential parts of Fielding’s “Story” and “History” as told by the elderly man. The meeting between Tom Jones and Partridge, both travellers, and the Man of the Hill, is described in the novel as “a truly amazing experience,” and not only in terms of thievery and physical attack. It’s also Tom and Partridge’s first meeting with someone who has seen both the highs and lows of life and has endured a great deal of pain. That is how the life storey of the Man of the Hill is portrayed as “the narrative of an unhappy man,” which Tom and his companion await with baited breath.

It is a narrative that begins when the Man of the Hill is a child and concludes when he realises he has lived a full life. It is a storey that begins when the Man of the Hill is a child and concludes when he realises that “Man alone, the king of this globe, the final and greatest work of the Supreme Being below the sun; man alone has dishonoured his own nature and called into question his Maker’s goodness through dishonesty, cruelty, ingratitude, and accursed treachery”. It’s a lengthy statement, and the Man of the Hill appears to be struggling to find the appropriate words. While man has been portrayed as “the king of the earth” and “the Supreme Being’s final and greatest work” in this depiction of human nature, there is an acknowledgement, based on observation and experience, that he is indeed “imperfect” and a “vile beast.”

When The Guy of the Hill offers this perspective on humanity, he is an elderly man who has lived in seclusion for a long period of time. Despite Tom’s convincing reasons, he maintains his conviction. The elderly guy deviates from his commitment to avoid humans just once (when he speaks to Tom and Partridge) and engages in an open dialogue with another species. Tom, the loyal listener, says virtually little in this episode. Tom’s statement occurs towards the story’s end. His objective is to comprehend and analyse the old man’s narrative of a series of events that occurred during his unique experience as a student.

By our calculations, the old man has alluded to personal and social events that occurred in late-seventeenth-century England. The reader is supposed to identify with Tom through this investigation, honest care, and absorption of knowledge about social life. This appears to be the author’s intention. Tom is the character who is discerning, critical, growing, making errors, and learning, according to Fielding. Tom’s education includes the Man of the Hill tale.

The personality of the Man of the Hill is moulded by his various journeys during his life, from his home to Oxford and then to London, as well as several little towns and villages around the United Kingdom and Europe. He, like Tom Jones, travels the world in pursuit of peace of mind. In truth, there are several connections between Tom Jones’ character and the events surrounding the Man of the Hill. For instance, The Man of the Hill has an uncaring mother and a nice, well-intentioned father. He also has a sibling who has succumbed to evil and developed into a dangerous adversary for his younger brother, a bright and brilliant young guy. The Man of the Hill’s exposure to the environment at Oxford, London, and elsewhere acts as a stark reminder of Tom’s ordeals on his travels. Both have a cheerful, helpful, and giving demeanour. Tom pays great attention to the Man of the Hill’s “History” primarily for these and other parallels.

Indeed, we notice that Tom initiates this dialogue by requesting that the old man share his life experiences with him. Why? “Your own past is not without tragedies” sends such strong messages about the prevalence of grief in Tom’s life that the reader may temporarily lose track of the Man of the Hill and focus exclusively on Tom’s mental state.

Despite the obvious connections between the elderly guy and Tom, Fielding intentionally draws them apart. Tom was once a wayward child, a ward of the state. Squire Allworthy is an exception to the norm that there are few, if any, decent gentlemen in Tom’s local neighbourhood who will defend and protect the weak. On the other hand, swarms of cheats, thieves, and rogues prowl the streets, offering an other career path to a talented young man in search of money and the comforts that come with it. Tom might easily become a member of the gang of gamblers from whom he protects unfortunate men and women, just like the Man of the Hill did in his day.

However, the social context in which they live stays constant. This, in my opinion, is something Fielding emphasises explicitly in the Man of the Hill episode and something we occasionally forget in our extensive discussions about narrative structure.Fielding’s work includes characterization, sarcasm, and narrative style. This portrait of society, in my opinion, is intimately related to the author’s employment of a variety of ways to acquaint us with the milieu in which he lived. The significance of the Man of the Hill episode is that it is more strictly “realistic” and specifically “historical” than the “History of Tom Jones,” which may be described as a “success storey” in a restricted sense.

The number of incidents in Fielding’s works alerting the reader to murders, rapes, molestation, waylaying, and other crimes committed on rural roads and in towns cannot be underestimated. The ‘developed’ western world appears uneasy with its “History.” It want to forget its past. Fielding as a social reality presenter is embarrassing at the moment. The irony and abstract philosophy that underpin Fielding’s sarcasm capture the attention of the contemporary western critic.

Indeed, the contrast between the Man of the Hill and Tom Jones enables us to see the evolution of Tom Jones’ enormous image, a figure that enables us to perceive eighteenth-century society as a stage for a hero’s athletic exploits. In contrast to the Man of the Hill’s profound and utter isolation, Tom Jones is a striving and energetic character who has a distinct perspective on his circumstances. Tom’s character is appealing because he is chasing a goal, which is something that a hero with the confidence of a competitor can achieve under the existing system. Tom is an excellent combination of broad traits such as honesty and sincerity, as well as an amorality that crashes against the day’s rigidities and hypocrisies. The disparity in views between the Man of the Hill and Tom Jones also indicated Fielding’s intellectual and perspectival leaning toward Tom’s successful completion of his life’s journey. It’s a colloquial phrase for “comedy,” or the author’s successful resolution of difficulties through his or her involvement. Fielding appears to have made a deliberate choice to assist Tom in overcoming his emotions that “nothing is more disgusting in my eyes than life.”

As a result, we can appreciate the crucial importance of aesthetic coherence in modern critical thought. The concept of the author speaking with the reader is critical in certain types of books. In addition to being an entertainer, the author is a teacher and a moral counsellor. Because the episode serves as a “History” for Tom, the Man of the Hill episode is a necessary component of the book. The reader is tasked with comparing and contrasting two historical epochs — the late seventeenth and mid-eighteenth centuries.
