The Sot-weed Factor: Or, a Voyage to Maryland.

By:
The Sot-weed Factor: Or, a Voyage to Maryland.
Ebenezer Cooke (c. 1665 – c. 1732), a London-born poet, wrote what some scholars consider the first American satire: "The Sotweed Factor, or A Voyage to Maryland, A Satyr" (1708). He has been fictionalized by John Barth as the comically innocent protagonist of The Sot-Weed Factor, a novel in which a series of fantastic misadventures leads Cooke to write his poem.
