The Best critical edition of ‘Hudibras’” (Lowndes, Dibdin)

 

Samuel Butler, a 17th-century satirist, is mostly remembered only for his work ‘Hudibras’ which satirizes religious sects, such as Puritans and Presbyterians, during the English Civil War. It became an instant success and was popular throughout Great Britain, but perhaps its most notable publication came through the political satire artwork of William Hogarth.

 

Voltaire thought highly of Butler’s ‘Hudibras’

“There is one English poem, the title whereof is ‘Hudibras’; it is ‘Don Quixote’ – it is our Satyre Menippee blended together: I never met with so much wit in one single book as in this.” (Lowndes 335)

 

This 1744 edition includes the famed Hogarth illustrations along with notes and annotations by Zachary Grey.
