His favorite theme is virtue in distress or danger, but assured of its reward in the fifth act; his most constant characters are men of feeling and young ladies who are either prudes or coquettes. Cumberland's comic talents lay in the invention of characters taken from the "outskirts of the empire," and intended to vindicate the good elements of the Scots , Irish , and colonials from English prejudice.
The plays are highly patriotic and adhere to conventional morality. If Cumberland's dialogue lacks brilliance and his characters reality, the construction of the plots is generally skilful, due to Cumberland's insight into the secrets of theatrical effect. Though Cumberland's sentimentality is often wearisome, his morality is generally sound; that if he was without the genius requisite for elevating the national drama, he did his best to keep it pure and sweet; and that if he borrowed much, he borrowed only the best aspects of other dramatists' work.
His first play was a tragedy, The Banishment of Cicero , published in after David Garrick rejected it; this was followed in by a musical drama, The Summer's Tale , subsequently compressed into an afterpiece Amelia Cumberland first essayed sentimental comedy in The Brothers This play is inspired by Henry Fielding 's Tom Jones ; its comic characters are the jolly old tar Captain Ironsides, and the henpecked husband Sir Benjamin Dove, whose progress to self-assertion is genuinely comic.
Horace Walpole said, that it acted well, but read ill, though he could distinguish in it "strokes of Mr Bentley. The epilogue paid a compliment to Garrick, who helped the production of Cumberland's second comedy The West-Indian Its hero, who probably owes much to the suggestion of Garrick, is a young scapegrace fresh from the tropics, "with rum and sugar enough belonging to him to make all the water in the Thames into punch,"—a libertine with generous instincts, which prevail in the end. This early example of the modern drama was favorably received; Boden translated it into German, and Goethe acted in it at the Weimar court.
Cumberland published his memoirs in George Romney , whose talent Cumberland encouraged, painted his portrait, which is in the National Portrait Gallery. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
