  Character Analysis and Role of 
Charles Marlow in She Stoops to Counquer 

Charles Marlow

: Promising young man who comes to the country to woo the Hardcastles' pretty daughter, Kate. His only drawback is that he is extremely shy around refined young ladies, although he is completely at ease—and even forward—with women of humble birth and working-class status. He is a pivotal character in the play, used by author Goldsmith to satirize England's preoccupation with, and overemphasis on, class distinctions. However, Marlow's redeeming qualities make him a likeable character, and the audience tends to root for him when he becomes the victim of a practical joke resulting in mix-ups and mistaken identities.

Hastings in She Stoops to Counquer 

Hastings


Friend of Marlow's, and lover of Constance Neville. A decent fellow who is willing to marry Constance even without her money.

: Son of Mrs. Hardcastle by her first
husband. He is a fat, ale-drinking young man who has
little ambition except to play practical jokes and visit
the local tavern whenever he has a mind. When Tony
comes of age, he will receive 1,500 pounds a year. His
mother hopes to marry him to her niece, Constance
Neville, who is in line to inherit a casket of jewels from
her uncle. Tony and Miss Neville despise each other.
