In the summer of 1779, a Franco-Spanish invasionseemed imminent and patriotic fervour superseded party divisions andpersonal animosities. The Critic satirises the panic of the summer inthe form of the comically misconceived tragedy The Spanish Armadathat is in rehearsal in the second and third acts, but The Critic endswith genuine patriotic feeling. This edition traces both the politicaland the theatrical objects of Sheridans satire and discusses itsreliance (and improvement) on earlier meta-theatrical burlesques likeThe Duke of Buckinghams Restoration romp The Rehearsal.
