9780198129820: The Patriot Opposition to Walpole: Politics, Poetry, and National Myth, 1725-1742

What did it mean to be a "Patriot" during the Walpole administration? This is the first full-length study of the so-called Patriot opposition to Walpole which reached its height during the clamor for war against Spain at the turn of the 1730s. Christine Gerrard examines the interrelationship between patriotism, politics, and poetry in the period 1724-1742, looking at the poetry and drama of such authors as James Thomson, Alexander Pope, and the young Samuel Johnson, who were all drawn to the heady idealism of the young Boy Patriots. Other authors discussed include Bolingbroke, Lyttleton, West, Mallet, and Hill, and Gerrard looks, too, at the literature, prints, architecture, and statuary of the 1730s.

About the Author:

Christine Gerrard is at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.

Review:


"A significant contribution to the growing corpus of scholarship on the genesis of British nationalism in the 18th century."--Times Higher Education Supplement


"This spirited study is a much needed complement to Mack, Goldgar, and others on anti-Walpolian satire and to recent work on Jacobite rhetoric....Like the best new historical literary scholarship, the book not only recontextualizes well-known writers..,but considers afresh many neglected figures. Gerrard has done her homework in archival reading very convincingly."--Choice


"Thanks to Christine Gerrard, we now have an angle of vision into the imaginative world of the Whigs who opposed Walpole."--Albion

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.What did it mean to be a Patriot during the Walpole administration? This is the first full-length study of the so-called Patriot opposition to Walpole which reached its height during the clamour for war against Spain at the turn of the 1730s. The book examines the interrelationship between patriotism, politics, and poetry in the period 1724-1742. Christine Gerrard investigates the growing Patriot opposition during the Walpolian oligarchy, and asks whether a broad credo united all of Walpole s political opponents, or whether there was a distinction between Whig and Tory Patriots. The role of Frederick Prince of Wales as the campaign s cultural and political figurehead (Bolingbroke s visionary Patriot King ) is discussed, as are the poetry and drama of such authors as James Thomson, Alexander Pope, and the young Samuel Johnson, who were all drawn to the heady idealism of the young Boy Patriots. Thomson s Rule Britannia and Johnson s London exploit the appeal to British history so central to the emotive propaganda of the Patriot campaign. Drawing on the literature, prints, architecture, and statuary of the 1730s, Christine Gerrard also discusses two of the decade s most powerful romantic patriotic myths - Gothic liberty, and Elizabethan greatness - and reveals that in its nationalistic emphasis upon Nordic and Celtic traditions, the figure of the ancient British Druid, and native bards , Patriot literature anticipates the Gothic strain emerging in the poetry of Gray, Collins, and the Wartons only a few years later.
