9781331501886: Satirical Poems of the Time of the Reformation, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Satirical Poems of the Time of the Reformation, Vol. 1

The Poems in this Collection cover a period of nearly twenty years (1565-1584). They are almost all of a political or party nature, and are largely tinged with the satirical element. To writings in this vein the Scottish people of the Reformation time were no strangers, for the trenchant productions of Dunbar and Lyndsay had thoroughly permeated the national mind.

The fierce struggle between Catholicism and Protestantism, the avarice and tyranny of the nobles, the unsettled and lawless condition of the Commons, the corruption and immorality that everywhere prevailed, furnished endless themes for the balladist and the satirist. As a natural result, during the latter half of the sixteenth century the country was literally deluged with ballads containing rough-and-ready pictures of passing events; circumstantial details of deeds of darkness; satirical effusions directed against those who, from their position or abilities, took a prominent part in affairs secular or sacred; and in some cases ebullitions of spite and rancour and personal abuse.
