ABSTRACT
Chapter II of the book "Fielding, Wieland, Goethe and the Rise of the Novel" is presented. It discusses the influence of novelist Henry Fielding on German literature. A proof of his popularity in Germany is seen by the practice of ascribing to Fielding works of other foreign authors. One of Fielding's followers, Christoph Martin Wieland, utilizes much of Fielding's technique of novel writing but the borrowed elements do not dominate.
