Mouse That Roared
The Mouse That Roared is a 1955 Cold War satirical
play based on the novel by Irish-American writer Leonard Wibberley,
which launched a series of satirical books about an imaginary
country in Europe called the Duchy of Grand Fenwick. Wibberley
went beyond the merely comic, using the premise to make still-quoted
commentaries about modern politics and world situations.
Released in February 1955 by Little, Brown, the novel first appeared
under the title The Day New York Was Invaded as a Saturday Evening
Post serial in six consecutive weeks, from Christmas Day, 1954,
through 29 January 1955. The English edition (London: Robert Hale,
1955) had the author's original title, "The Wrath of Grapes",
a play on John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath.
The playtakes a satirical look at themes including the nuclear
arms race, nuclear weapons in general, and the politics of the
United States. The phrase "mouse that roared" has proved
a durable meme.
