Synopsis

Sir David Lyndsay's a Satire of the Three Estates by John Corbett

Sir David Lyndsay's A Satire of the Three Estates is the earliest complete Scottish play on record, dating from the middle of the sixteenth century. By turns funny and formal, obscene and ceremonial, and filled with sharp social commentary, it is a confident expression of dramatic prowess. John Corbett's SCOTNOTE study guide examines the historical background, explores the play's language and style, and gives a concise introduction to this key work in the Scottish theatrical tradition. These notes are suitable for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
