520    What did it mean to be a "Patriot" during the Walpole 
       administration? This is the first full-length study of the
       so-called Patriot opposition to Walpole which reached its 
       height during the clamor for war against Spain at the turn
       of the 1730s. Christine Gerrard examines the 
       interrelationship between patriotism, politics, and poetry
       in the period 1724-1742, looking at the poetry and drama 
       of such authors as James Thomson, Alexander Pope, and the 
       young Samuel Johnson, who were all drawn to the heady 
       idealism of the young Boy Patriots. Other authors 
       discussed include Bolingbroke, Lyttleton, West, Mallet, 
       and Hill, and Gerrard looks, too, at the literature, 
       prints, architecture, and statuary of the 1730s.
