When Fielding was winched aboard the Queen of Portugal bound for Lisbon in June 1754 he had small hope of surviving even the milder Portuguese winter. The author of Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones was 'dying from a complication of disorders' and the gravity of his illness sparks the unflinching humour and pathos of the Journal. In it Fielding scrutinizes his body's decay and the corruption of English society, undercutting with irony his own high claims for his former conduct as a London magistrate. In it, too, he makes merry with xenophobia and the rapturous excesses of contemporary travel writing, while casting himself in the role of a post-heroic Odysseus or Aeneas, a role tinged with farce as he charts the tortuous voyage of the Queen of Portugal.
