John MacSycophant

Jump to navigation Jump to search

John MacSycophant is a satirical burlesque style piece by an anonymous author.

Published on 10 August 1832 De Zuid-Afrikaan (also as Jan Pluimstrykerszoon ("John Featherbrusher's son") in the Dutch version), it had been written in emulation of C.E. Boniface's successful satire De Nieuwe Ridderorde of De Temperantisten and was in this case aimed at John Fairbairn and the English clergy of the time.

There is no mention of a performance.
