If there was one central character, however, it Bartholomew-fair book that of Punch, the uncrowned monarch of "puppet-plays, hobby-horses, Bartholomew-fair book, crowds, and bagpipes. O Lord, Sir! Madame Overdo and Win are brought in, masked, as prostitutes; Madame Overdo is drunk. As the black storm upon the mountain top Sets off the sunbeam in the valley, so That huge fermenting mass of human-kind Serves as a solemn back-ground, or relief, To single forms and objects, whence they draw, For feeling and contemplative regard, More than inherent liveliness and power. Hibbard, editor. Littlewit and his wife, Win-The-Fight, seem to be the moral axis of the play, about which the band of hypocrites, that is, the rest of the cast, spins; but they are, through the former's puppet-play, and through the latter's becoming a prostitute, both interested in selling themselves, so in fact, it is both the case that the play has no moral An exuberant and thought-provoking delight, Jonson's Bartholomew Fair may indeed be, in the words of Samuel Pepys, "the greatest comedy in the world".

Happy are they both-- Mother and child! But some-- While he forewarns, denounces, launches forth, Against all systems built on abstract rights, Keen ridicule; the majesty proclaims Of Institutes and Laws, hallowed by time; Declares the vital power of social ties Endeared by Custom; and with high disdain, Exploding upstart Theory, insists Upon the allegiance to which men are born-- Some--say at once a froward multitude-- Murmur for truth is hated, where not loved As the winds fret within the Aeolian cave, Galled by their monarch's chain.
