Last summer, while studying Victorian England I became aware of the role that criticism played in the lives of the English. While reflecting on this I remembered some Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas I had played in earlier and recalled striking criticism evident in them. After doing some additional reading on Gilbert and Sullivan, I perceived that what at first I though was criticism was rather satire. I chose this subject because apparently nothing had been attempted on discussing the satire except as the opera was discussed.
