Sir Roger’s character represents the English country gentleman. He is a kind, generous, and just man. He is also somewhat eccentric and old-fashioned. He is a good-natured and often gullible man, and he is said to be “more beloved than esteemed.” The essays about Sir Roger de Coverley are a valuable source of information about English society in the early 18th century. They provide insights into the social, political, and cultural life of the time.
