about

This engaging study explores how the works of Shakespeare, Milton, Swift, and others were taken up by caricaturists as a means of helping the eighteenth-century British public make sense of political issues, outrages, and personalities. The first in-depth exploration of the relationship between literature and visual satire in this period, David Taylor’s book explores how great texts, seen through the lens of visual parody, shape how we understand the political world. It offers a fascinating, novel approach to literary history.
David Francis Taylor is associate professor of eighteenth-century literature at the University of Warwick, and the award-winning author of Theatres of Opposition: Empire, Revolution, and Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
