The Satires of Dryden; Absalom and Achitophel, the Medal, Mac Flecknoe. While certainly famous for his plays, Dryden is perhaps remembered most for his satirical poems, such as “Absalom and Achitophel” () and “Mac Flecknoe” (). Dryden married Lady Elizabeth Howard inand while their marriage was said to be rather unhappy, the couple had three sons—Charles, John, and Erasmus—whom they deeply loved and were very close to.

Mac Flecknoe is the finest short satirical poem in which Dryden has treated Thomas Sahdwell with humorous contempt. Mac Flecknoe is both a personal and literary satire. Dryden presents Shadwell as a dull poetaster, a corpulent man and a plagiarist.

Dryden’s uses the heroic couplet for satirical purposes. Dryden responded with Absalom and Achitophel and Mac Flecknoe. Shadwell succeeded Dryden as poet laureate and continued to emulate Ben Jonson and his comedy of humors. His most successful work was Epsom-Wells ().

Shadwell married Anne Gibbs, an actress, and had five children. - Buy The Satires of Dryden; Absalom and Achitophel, the Medal, Mac Flecknoe book online at best prices in india on Read The Satires of Dryden; Absalom and Achitophel, the Medal, Mac Flecknoe book reviews & author details and more at Author: John Dryden.

Misled by Achitophel, Absalom left the court. As a preliminary step he undertook a tour of the country with stately pomp and glamour.

So the real purpose of Absalom and Achitophel was cleverly concealed behind a show of love and duty for the King. It was war in the guise of peace.

Mac Flecknoe: Summary. Mac Flecknoe as a Mock-heroic. The style of many passages in Mac Flecknoe is identical with the polished heroic idiom of Absalom and Achitophel. The joke that makes "a poem exquisitely satirical" consists in using this style, which was soon to prove a perfect medium for a poem about the King and weighty matters of State, to describe Shadwell and his insignificant affairs.

Das,B.A. (H), English, IInd year Q. Write on John Dryden’s ‘Mac Flecknoe’ as a satire. John Dryden’s Mac Flecknoe, as part of his corpus of satirical verse, is a short piece, and not as overtly political as, say, Absalom and Achitophel.

It does aim to censure through. Absalom and Achitophel was originally published in November (a “second part” appeared in but is not included here).
