Simpson & Co.: A Comedy in two Acts, as Performed at the New York and Drury Lane Theatres

John Poole

This book is a satirical comedy written by John Poole, a British playwright, in 1847. The play pokes fun at the commercial and social aspirations of the newly rich in Victorian England, and explores themes such as gender, class, and family values. It was a popular success on both sides of the Atlantic, and is considered one of the best examples of Victorian comedy of manners. The book is a must-read for anyone interested in the social and cultural history of the 19th century.
