Clearly written for a particular time and place, but anyone with a smidge of 17th century British history and some familiarity with the debates that swirl around Reformed theology will find this utterly hilarious – unless, that is, you’re a Presbyterian.

LOVED IT!! Hilarious, electric writing. Hudibras and squire Ralpho are the heroes, and they bumble through a post-Cromwell England. Lampoons Puritans and pokes fun at knight-errantry.

A cross between Spenser's Faerie Queen and Cervante's Don Quixote. Hudibras and his squire Ralpho start their adventure with a debate overt he ethics of bear baiting. Ralpho compares bear baiting to ecclesiastic authority and governance. This criticism is the underlying theme throughout the rest of the poem.
