Rate this:
Written in the 1750s (and never before published) by the Scottish physician Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding members of the Tuesday Club of Annapolis, the History is a mock-heroic narrative of ten years in the life of an 18th century social club. It is a political satire representing the gamut of 18th century wit--pseudo- learned essays and digressions, bombastic letters and speeches, doggerel verse, riddles and conundrums, scatological humor and polite smut. Editor Micklus (American literature, SUNY Binghamton) provides introductory and explanatory discussion. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
