@import url(../index.css); Gay, JOHN Practical Reference Library (1685-1732), an English poet. In his youth he was apprenticed to a silk mercer in London, but he soon gave up that work. In 1711 he published his Rural Sports, which was followed by several pastoral poems, written under the influence of Pope. In 1715 appeared his burlesque drama of What d'ye Call It?, followed by Trivia, or the Art of Walking the Streets of London. His next piece, a farce entitled Three Hours after Marriage, failed entirely, but The Captive, a tragedy produced some years later, met with some success. His reputation was greatly increased by the publication of his Fables in verse, but it was not until the appearance of the Beggar's Opera that he became really famous. This was first acted in 1727, at Lincoln's Inn Fields, where it ran for sixty-three nights, but the lord-chamberlain refused to license for performance a second part, entitled Polly.

    by Bamber Gascoigne
    John Gay (1685-1732) English poet and dramatist, friend of Pope and Swift. Gay is remembered for his play THE BEGGAR'S OPERA (1728), which was the basis for Kurt Weil and Bertolt Brecht 's classical work Dreigroschenoper (1928, The Threepenny Opera). The play was highly successful and enabled Gay to spent more money on gambling and drinking. Its sequel, POLLY (1729), was supposedly suppressed by the prime minister Robert Walpole, who thus only incited people to buy its printed version. Let us drink and sport to-day,
    Ours is not to-morrow:
    Love with youth flies swift away,
    Age is naught but sorrow.
    Dance and sing,
    Time's on the wing,
    Life never knows the return of spring.
    (from The Beggar's Opera In 1708 Gay published 'Wine', a poem to celebrate the Act of Union between England and Scotland and in 1711 he published the pamphlet THE PRESENT STATE OF WIT. During these years he met Pope and began to visit the fashionable coffee-houses. In London Gay supported himself by working as a journalist. His first important poem, THE RURAL SPORTS (1713), was dedicated to Pope. The long poem comically glorifies descriptions of hunting and fishing. THE WHAT D'YE CALL IT (1715) was Gay's first satirical play, which he finished at the age of 30. The Beggar's Opera was first performed when the author was 43. John Pepusch, a German musician, wrote popular songs for the play. The story of highwaymen and corrupt law-keepers is still performed. Its sequel

    With hollow blasts of wind,
