Annotation

Satire on gender relations. One of five related pamphlets by Neville, four in 1647 and one in 1750. This one is somewhat different from the others in that it is set in ancient Rome rather than contemporary Britain. It also includes tradesmen’s wives, while in most of the others, the women are primarily from the aristocracy.
