Thelittle play has, however, other sources of interest; itslong and interesting stage history, and its thoroughgoing burlesque of the heroic play. The circumstances under which Fieldingwrote, the development from the slight Tom Thumb of into The Tragedy of Tragedies ofthe anonymous interpolation called The Battle of the Poets, andthe stage history of the play itself and of its adaptations, occupy the first two chapters of the introductionand the appendices.
The nature and the period of theplays burlesqued, and the method with which Fieldingworked out a comprehensive burlesque of the heroicplay are developed in the third chapter; and the conclusions here drawn are supplemented and enforced inthe notes, in which Fielding's allusions and referencesare checked, and the correspondence between TheTragedy of Tragedies and the plays it assails is established as far as possible by further quotation.
Probably the most interesting point in relation tothe texts is the development of the version of into that of Attempts to render this as clearas possible by superposition or by arrangement inviii PREFACEparallel columns were abandoned; the first because ofthe already complicated nature of the text of TheTragedy of Tragedies, and the second because of theawkwardness and bulkiness which it entailed.

The second edition does not appear inordinarily accessible libraries. Incidentally, this edition may be of some interest tostudents of the life of Fielding. Because of its peculiarnature, The Tragedy of Tragedies, more than any otherplays to which Fielding devoted the first ten years ofhis career, affords evidence in refutation of the old andcommonly accepted theory that Fielding's youth waswoefully misspent in an uninterrupted sowing of wildoats, and that his plays were dashed off over night onstray tobacco wrappers.
In the case of this play, atany rate, such a theory cannot stand. During the course of this work I have placed myselfunder great obligations to many of the members of theEnglish staffs at Yale and the University of Minnesota,and especially to Professor George H. Nettleton, whosehelp from start to finish has been invaluable, and toProfessor Wilbur L.

Plays Specifically Parodied by Fielding. Of these three, The Tragedy ofTragedies has most successfully withstood the test oftime. Pasquin, it is true, is still remembered for itspolitical satire and connection with the Licensing Actofand The Author's Farce, with its satiricalpictures of an early Georgian Grub Street, is stillhighly diverting; but The Tragedy of Tragedies possesses what the others do not an interest quite independent of local historical fact.
Allusions to Dryden,Lee, and Banks are now, of course, pale and colorless ;but even the modern reader is familiar with the conception of tragedy which Fielding attacks. Anunpublished play, Deborah, or a Wife for you all, acted but once, wasproduced at Drury Lane April 6, Buckingham and Sheridan, however,adopted the form of the play within a play, and emphasized the characters of Bayes1 and Sir FretfulPlagiary.
This gives both plays an advantage overFielding's burlesque in the matter of stage production; The Tragedy of Tragedies has no stellar role,and no character so interesting as Bayes or Sir Fretful.
It has, on the other hand, structural unity andcoherence which are impossible in the other plays. Moreover, although The Tragedy of Tragedies neverexercised an influence in dramatic history comparablewith that of The Rehearsal, it had a highly creditablestage history, being acted in one guise or another formore than a century.
Fielding's dialogue, it may beadmitted, never rises to the level of Sheridan's; buthis play has qualities which have made it worthy oflong-extended life. His intellectual sincerity, sharppenetration, and laughing humor, together with hisvigorous, whole-souled manner of assailing sham, distinguish The Tragedy of Tragedies as they did thenovels which came later.
The play first appeared in in two very briefacts with the title Tom Thumb. During the year wereissued second and third editions containing additionalmaterial in dialogue and a preface.
There was alsointerpolated an anonymous extra act, The Battle ofthe Poets, satirizing the election of Colley Gibber asi Bayes was a favorite role of Gibber, Garrick, and Foote, all ofwhom produced The Rehearsal frequently. The next year,it was produced in itsfinal form, The Tragedy of Tragedies, Or, The Lifeand Death of Tom Thumb the Great, with an amplification of the old material, the addition of new, elaborate mock-critical foot-notes, and a new preface.
When Fielding came to his novels, ten years later,he had, of course, a clearly defined theory of the legitimate devices and purposes of comic writing, which heexpounded in the little essays scattered throughout thenarrative. It is hardly probable, however, that at theoutset his mind was much troubled by theory.
Hewas an ambitious, hard-working young dramatist, asthe number of his plays and his careful revision ofthem prove, against the assertions of sneering contemporaries and his biographers ; and he was undoubtedly on the lookout for dramatic capital.
In additionto this, his natural spirit and what Austin Dobsoncalls his "unlimited capacity for enjoymentm accountvery satisfactorily at this stage of his career for thewriting of Tom Thumb.Consider a version of the Cournot doupoly game (described in earlier exercises).
