Scheuerle argues that the romantic attitudes found in Geoffry Hamlyn reflect Kingsley's "boyish joviality" which enabled him to create characters and a story of "vigorous action" that entertains. The absence of hardship emphasizes the romance of the novel and the return of the characters to England asserts that the proper place for such "good" people is in England.
