Scriblerus Club

The Scriblerus Club was an informal group of friends that included Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and John Gay. Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke and Robert Harley, 1st Earl of Oxford and Mortimer were occasional members and contributors to the club projects, as well. The club began as a project of satirizing the abuses of learning wherever they might be found, which led to The Memoirs of Martin Scriblerus. The second edition of Pope's The Dunciad also contains work attributed to Martinus Scriblerus.
