Summary
"Henry Fielding is dying. His doctors, who have kept him alive by regularly draining fluid from his stomach, have ordered him to convalesce in a warmer climate. Since the famous author can no longer walk, his bloated and decaying carcass is hoisted by crane onto a ship bound for Portugal. Bystanders avert their eyes and sailors jeer at him. The scene, as recorded in his journal, is horrific and humiliating. The writer of Tom Jones, and the progenitor of the modern novel form, is accompanied by his hopeful wife and two daughters. Privately, however, he has begun the notebook that he knows will end in the ellipses of his death, published posthumously in 1755 as The Journal of a Voyage to Lisbon. It is a bizarre document; a record of quite literally sailing into the sunset?the ship heads west from the mouth of the Thames along the southern coast of England?that is by turns epic and farcically trivial.
