[D’URFEY, Thomas].

Butler’s Ghost: or Hudibras. The Fourth Part. With Reflections upon these Times …

First edition of D’Urfey’s sequel to Samuel Butler’s burlesque poem Hudibras, the most celebrated satire of the seventeenth century, published in three parts in 1663-78. Written in hudibrastic metre, the two cantos of Butler’s Ghost follow the progress of Butler’s eponymous hero from an interrupted suicide attempt, to a joyous engagement to a ‘cunning’ widow, and thence to unhappy cuckoldry, when he discovers his new wife and his friend Stalliano in ‘undecent manner’ on his wedding day. D’Urfey turns Butler’s Presbyterian Knight into a Whig and paints scathing portraits of such contemporaries as Titus Oates (‘Doctoro’) and Shaftesbury (‘Pygmy’).
