Humphry Clinker (Penguin English Library)
Humphry Clinker by Tobias Smollett
Back cover description:
Smollett’s savage, boisterously funny lambasting of eighteenth-century British society charts the unfortunate journey of the gout-ridden and irascible squire Matthew Bramble across Britain, who finds himself everywhere surrounded by decadents, pimps, con-men, raucousness and degeneracy – until the arrival of the trusty manservant Humphry Clinker promises to improve his fortunes.
Populated with unforgettable grotesques and written with a relish for earthy humor and wordplay, and a ferocious pessimism, Humphry Clinker is Smollett’s masterpiece.
