The goal of the Spectator was, "to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality. to bring philosophy out of the closets and libraries, schools and colleges, to dwell in clubs and assemblies, at tea-tables and coffee houses." The Spectator used a group of characters in various issues. The best known character was Sir Roger De Coverley who was an English squire of Queen Anne's reign. He exemplified the values of an old country gentleman, and was portrayed as lovable but somewhat ridiculous, making his Tory politics seem harmless and a bit silly. This is an entertaining anecdotal book about this warm, witty and charming character. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 6086HG
