English Clandestine Satire, 1660-1702


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a description of George Villiers, second Duke of Buckingham and how his life as it is told today is essentially one that has been compiled from satires. It argues that the ‘Buckingham’created by the satirists is a fascinating figure in its own right, and one that reveals a great deal about the dreams and nightmares of the Restoration political imagination. The modes and origins of clandestine satire are discussed.

Keywords:   Duke of Buckingham, clandestine satire, Restoration, political imagination
