(p.16) (p.17) 1 Dryden's Later Plays and Poems
Poetry of Opposition and Revolution

Howard Erskine-Hill

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses political allusion and bearing in Dryden's four later dramas after Don Sebastian, especially the neglected later play Love Triumphant (1694), and three crucial poems,‘To My Dear Friend Mr. Congreve’, On His Comedy The Double Dealer (1693), Alexander's Feast; Or the Power of Musique (1697), and ‘The Character of the Good Parson’, published in Fables Ancient and Modern (1700). To continue the comparison of Milton and Dryden ‘After the Revolution’, it is both necessary and rewarding to consider Dryden's later works other than his Aeneis and Don Sebastian.

Keywords:   Dryden, plays, poems, Milton, Aenesis, Don Sebastian
