In the case of the artist or the writer this influence is brought to bear generally in a financial way–by a wealthy patron who will order a picture or statue provided it accords with his own ideas–by hostile criticism, public or private, that drives away purchasers. They have something dramatic in them; each person plays an assumed part; the affected, overstrained politeness and suppression of real sentiment lead to concealed irony, and the spirit of satire and raillery; and hence we may account for the perfection of the genteel comedy of the century before the last, when poets were allowed to mingle in the court-circles, and took their cue from the splendid ring Of mimic statesmen and their merry king.
