The Vicar of Wakefield
A Tale, Supposed to be written by Himself
The Vicar, Dr. Charles Primrose, lives an idyllic life in a country parish with his wife Deborah, son George, daughters Olivia and Sophia, and three other children. He is wealthy due to an inheritance he received from a deceased relative. On the evening of George’s wedding to wealthy Arabella Wilmot, the Vicar loses all his money. The Vicar recounts his misfortune and attempts to right this wrong.
