NONINTERVENTIONIST HUMANISM IN FIELDING'S TOM JONES

Author

Md. Nazmul Huda

Abstract

Peaceful and happy maintenance of life principally rests upon a sound human society.
However, a society possesses both good and evil forces with the evil force predominating. It cannot be changed into a good one without rigorous, repeated and concerted attempts of
correction. There are two plausible ways of social reformation. One is to alter the mind of the vile persons; another is to eliminate all of them from the society by exercising punishment
upon them. The second one can never be a reasonable, commonsensical method, for, by the continuous process of counseling, motivation and forgiveness which is Fielding's attitude
towards human nature, many of the degenerated people may be converted into righteous ones. And the society may categorically undergo a superb, radical change. Again, our society is basically full of ideological and religious factions, where observing and assessing a social figure or phenomenon from liberal, humanistic point of view is hardly justified. This diversity of opinions leads to disarray, restiveness and discontent. The study of Henry Feilding's novel, Tom Jones may stand contributory to the restoration of concord and quiet in our social milieu as well as to analyze literary issues from the objective point of view. This article aims at assessing Henry Fielding's Tom Jones from a moderate perspective. An attempt has been made to exhibit Fielding not to endeavour in producing entirely decent or obnoxious figures; rather, he plainly renders them life-like and portrays them as realistic. For example, he sketches Tom Jones as a naive individual erring every now and then. The narrative, though treated this way, seems, as a matter of fact, to be framed with a premeditated rationale, which is to edify didactic instruction in the mode of travesty. Moreover, to accomplish the assignment of edifying exhortation and to keep the tale multihued and spectacular, Fielding exerts realism, haunting intrusion on the part of the author, mock-epic paradigm, and irony accruing out of incongruence between appearance and reality. By means of authorial interrupting description in the course of the plot, Fielding entangles his devotees in the evaluations of ethical verdict. With irony and mock-epic technique, alongside offering himself scopes to deal with his light-hearted burlesque, he presents prospects for his esteemed readers to evaluate the total characterization. Hence, it is quite reasonable to pronounce that the nub of Tom Jones is a pageant of munificent human temperament. He firmly believes that if a society is to be decent, its inmates must be reformed, too, through a very liberal modification rather than force, psychological tyranny and strong vigilant team guarding constantly.
