So what exactly is going on between Betsy Trotwood and Mr. Dick?

 I love that Uriah’s name and “ ’umble” both start with a “u”:  It always reminds us that he’s very “umble”.  And, of course, both his last name, “Heep” and “humble” start with an “h”.

My favorite quote so far:  “A tender young cork, however, would have had no more chance against a pair of corkscrews…than I had against Uriah and Mrs Heep.”  (page 265)

  1. Excellent points! I always struggle to picture Uriah 'writhing.' It sounds ominous and horrible, but I can't quite see it...
