This book explains the effects of the Stage Licensing Act of 1737 on its target, satiric comedy. Contextualising the Licensing Act in terms of the Collier Controversy (1698-1728), this book shows that the Walpole ministry avocated a return to the "sympathetic satire" that developed during that earlier theatrical crisis.
