This set provides one, offering a representative collection of the verse satire published between the mid-1780s and the mid-1830s. It makes available a wealth of fascinating, rare and hitherto unedited material and provides, for the first time, the annotation necessary to a full appreciation of the complexities of the period’s satire. The set also includes two important single-author volumes, the first scholarly editions of the satires of William Gifford and Thomas Moore. Satirical writing was widespread in the Romantic period; its masterpiece, Byron’s Don Juan, is part of a vibrant literary tradition which, in both its Romantic and anti-Romantic manifestations, has much to say about the spirit of the age. Often ideologically partisan, satire is also a significant political vehicle, used to great effect from both the right (in Gifford, Mathias, Blackwood’s and John Bull) and the left (in Blake, Shelley, Hone and Moore). The most significant political events of the day (the French Revolution, Pittite authoritarianism, the Queen Caroline crisis) resound through the satirical writing of the period, allied to fascinating social commentary on issues such as the position of women and the preoccupations of fashionable life.
