Fielding's play Pasquin (1736), subtitled A Dramatick Satire on the Times, is a famous satirical attack on pantomime, which was then in vogue on the English stage. It is one of a series of dangerously political plays that led directly to the passage of the Licensing Act of 1737. The play is set on a stage during a morning play rehearsal. The actors are actually rehearsing two plays, a comedy and a tragedy, before an overbearing director and some lookers-on.

"During Sir Robert Walpole's term as "Prime Minister" exorbitant amounts of money were spent on propaganda in support of his administration. Since nearly all the major writers of the period adopted an anti-government stance, however, historians have shown far more interest in the organization and contents of opposition propaganda than in its pro-government counterpart. This book is the first comprehensive study of the literature published in support of Walpole's administration, and explores important pro-government themes, and also explains how the propaganda network was organized and what precisely the Old Corps Whig leadership hoped to achieve."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
