Satire and the Anglo-Dutch Wars

The Second and Third Anglo-Dutch Wars (1665–67, 1672–74) saw the restored monarchy in conflict with the developing European news industry. Consequently, these were wars in which news itself constituted a key battlefield at home and abroad. This seminar will discuss the Restoration regime's attempts to control news, an agenda pursued in part through popular poetry, before demonstrating the manner in which wartime satirists engaged with these efforts.
