William Congreve was born in Bardsey Grange, England on January 24, 1670. He attended Trinity College, Dublin, and was admitted to the Middle Temple to study law. He completed his first play, The Old Bachelor, in 1690. He became associated with John Dryden, collaborating with him on translations of the satires of Juvenal and Persius in 1693. His other plays include Love for Love, The Way of the World, and The Mourning Bride. He died on January 19, 1729.George S. Schuyler was an African American professional journalist of considerable distinction who served as an officer in the army in World War I and later made a name for himself as a satirical polemicist, attacking both white and black positions in the racial politics of this country. He carved out a position for himself as a conservative spokesman within the African American community, particularly as an ardent anti-Communist. His ingenious Swiftian fantasy, Black No More (1934), tells the story of a miracle cure for black skin color by means of which, to the great discomfort of the white population, the black and white "races" become indistinguishable.
