The political works of Richard Brinsley Sheridan

This project will investigate the dramatist, theatre-owner and politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan, who was more notoriously known as a spin doctor, drinker and debtor. Sheridan was a politician for nearly three decades. This study is a reappraisal of his career, exploring his national and international significance as a politician and orator, and his wider political activity – such as his journalistic writing. Sheridan, on account of his excellent oratorical skills, which made his speeches popular among newspaper editors, served as progenitor for the “spin doctor”. The project will culminate in the publication of a four-volume edition of his complete political works.
