mac flecknoe Reviews
A satiric poem that illustrates a King and his son’s lack of virtue to rule. Here Dryden is actually referring to one of his friend Shadwell as king’s son and making fun of him. Although fun to read and laughable at times but the mock-heroic satire seems childish to me. Since Dryden has tried to make fun of one of his friend-turned-enemy just because they had literary and political disagreements. It actually shows how narrow-minded Dryden was, who couldn’t take a difference of opinion healthily.
3.5 stars, because the digs Dryden takes on Shadwell are just too good!
First of all, the poem makes me sympathize with the heir to throne of dullness, Thomas Shadwell, but some laughter. Although I adore Satire and this kind of mock epic poems, I do not agree with John Dryden in two points; Shadwell was not a confirmed dullard as he says him; though he was a humble poet, he was the comic dramatist of some repute. Moreover, it's not meaning that we are different in political views and affiliations that we attack each others by words. There is a constructive criticism we can use in commenting on others.
Hilarious and indicative of England's politics and literary culture during the Restoration.
Perhaps this is not the edition which I read but this was my first time reading a satire . And I found Dryden's really funny and loved the metaphors he used!
John Dryden was a savage. This needs to be read for the insults alone. I guess it also gives the reader a sense of what literary criticism was up to in 17th century England.
