Description Shadwell, Thomas (1642?-1692) London: Printed by J. M. for Henry Herringman, 1676 Thomas Shadwell produced his first play, a comedy, in 1668. The Sullen Lovers, written in the style of Ben Jonson, was based on a play by Moliere. Shadwell's best-known and best-liked play was Epsom-wells, first produced in 1672. For the next fourteen years, Shadwell produced nearly a play a year, each portraying a colorful, comical picture of contemporary conduct. Shadwell and John Dryden were on friendly terms until Dryden joined the company of the court. Shadwell, a champion of Protestantism, attacked John Dryden (1631-1700) in a satire. The result was an immediate response from Dryden with a satire of his own. The ink flew until 1688, when, because of a Whig victory, Shadwell replaced Dyrden as poet laureate. University of Utah copy bound with Otway, Thomas. The Souldier's fortune. London, 1687; and others.
