I found the writer’s style of a novel in the form of a series of letters between characters to be very interesting! It also was interesting that the novel is titled “The Expedition of Humphry Clinker,” but readers don’t even encounter said character until well into the novel. I found a connection between Humphry Clinker and She Stoops to Conquer in the emphasis on appearance for the characters. When we first meet Humphry, he is unkempt and sickly. Later, when Mr. Bramble gives him money to get himself new clothes, he is unrecognizable: “Indeed, the difference was very conspicuous: this was a smart fellow, with a narrow-brimmed hat, with gold cording, a cut bob, a decent blue jacket, leather breeches, and a clean linen shirt, puffed above the waist-band….and, at length, displayed the individual countenance of Humphry Clinker, who had metamorphosed himself in this manner…” (95). This was similar to the trick Kate plays on Marlow—at one moment she appears to be a completely different person than the next because of the way she dresses and presents herself. Another connection I noticed with Humphry Clinker was the emphasis of the characters on class distinction. Just as Marlow is highly concerned with Kate’s social class and reacts differently to her two roles of a barmaid and upper-class woman, Matthew is concerned with the lack of class distinction in London: “every trader in any degree of credit, every broker and attorney, maintains a couple of footmen, a coachman, and postilion” (83). What’s interesting is the contrast between Matthew and Lydia—Lydia is very excited and welcoming of her surroundings, while Matthew is cynical and stuck in the past (“the whole nation seems to be running out of their wits” (101)). I saw it as a resistance of the stubborn uncle to the changing of time and culture versus an embrace of unity and imagination from the niece.
