Write The First Customer Review

This work is essentially a rhetorical study of the relationship between satire and panegyric in epideictic writing by Samuel Daniel, Andrew Marvell, Jonathan Swift, and Charles Churchill from 1603 to 1764. It is intended to provide not just an account of the decadence and decline of panegyric, but an explanation for both the periodic greatness and the peculiar character of eighteenth-century satire.
