    About "John Vanbrugh W. Oxberry"

    1. John Vanbrugh W. Oxberry

      Sir John Vanbrugh pronounced Van bru January 24, 1664 March 26, 1726 was an English architect and dramatist, perhaps best known as the designer of Blenheim Palace He wrote two argumentative and outspoken Restoration comedies, The Relapse 1696 and The Provoked Wife 1697 , which have become enduring stage favourites but originally occasioned much controversy.Vanbrugh was in many senses a radical throughout his life As a young man and a committed Whig, he was part of the scheme to overthrow James II, put William III on the throne and protect English parliamentary democracy, dangerous undertakings which landed him in the dreaded Bastille of Paris as a political prisoner In his career as a playwright, he offended many sections of Restoration and 18th century society, not only by the sexual explicitness of his plays, but also by their messages in defence of women s rights in marriage He was attacked on both counts, and was one of the prime targets of Jeremy Collier s Short View of the Immorality and Profaneness of the English Stage In his architectural career, he created what came to be known as English Baroque His architectural work was as bold and daring as his early political activism and marriage themed plays, and jarred conservative opinions on the subject.
