Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eighteenth-century picaresque masterpiece- now in a new edition

A triumph of English satire, Humphry Clinker was published just three months prior to its author's death in 1771. At its heart is Matthew Bramble, a gout-ridden misanthrope who travels Britain with his nephew, niece, spinster sister, and manservant, the trusty Humphry Clinker. In a narrative peopled with pimps, drunkards, and con men, Bramble's pessimistic views on the world's degeneracy- and his eagerness to express them-betray the author's belief that his countrymen were suffering from an acute lack of sense and sobriety. Boisterous and keenly observant, Humphry Clinker is a delicious send-up of eighteenth-century society.
