Particularly in the 1720s, Swift became vehemently engaged in Irish politics. He reacted to the debilitating effects of English commercial and political injustices in a large body of pamphlets, essays, and satirical works, including the perennially popular Gulliver's Travels. A Modest Proposal, published in 1729 in response to worsening conditions in Ireland, is perhaps the severest and most scathing of all Swift's pamphlets. The tract did not shock or outrage contemporary readers as Swift must have intended; its economics was taken as a great joke, its more incisive critiques ignored. Although Swift's disgust with the state of the nation continued to increase, A Modest Proposal was the last of his essays about Ireland. Swift wrote mostly poetry in the later years of his life, and he died in 1745.
The success of Oh,What a Lovely War produced at least two writs: one from Allan, who went to court to secure his credit for having chosen the title; one from Clark, who, with the smell of money in his nostrils, sued Littlewood's company for failing to acknowledge its use of his research. (The prize was a sweet one: £1,000 in damages and five per cent of the gross of the movie rights.) The case that Littlewood and her cast most feared, however, never materialised. Their play had reproduced Clark's view of Haig as bungling, stubborn and indifferent to the suffering of his men. "The Haig family wanted to take out an injunction on us because we were denigrating their ancestor," recalls Melvin. "But everything that we said on stage was documented. Word for word. Lines like, 'I ask thee for victory, Lord, before the Americans arrive.' They sent their solicitors in to see the show three times a week, and had we got one word wrong they could have closed us."
