McCarthy and Kraft (253n) explain the poem was written when some proposed theatricals by the students at Warrington were prohibited by the tutors and her brother John Aikin published a response in the Essays on Song-Writing (1772). When Barbauld and her husband had their own school, she directed student plays.
