The Adventures of Eovaai is the most important prose satire of English politics and the administration of Sir Robert Walpole betweenGulliver’s Travels and Jonathan Wild.” — Jerry C. Beasley, University of Delaware

Haywood's novel is the story of the beautiful Princess Eovaai. Groomed for the throne by her father, who teaches her Lockean notions of liberty, she is overthrown, enmeshed in civil war, and then magically transported to a foreign land by an evil man. Part magician, part politician, he plots to marry her for political reasons. The fascinating reflexive structure of The Adventures of Eovaai incorporates argumentative intrusions (by the Translator, an Historian, etc.), interweaves political and amatory storylines, and blends a wild mix of genres.
