Lewis Theobald (tĬb´əld, thē´ōbôld), 1688–1744, English author. He is chiefly remembered for his Shakespeare Restored (1726), in which he exposed the inaccuracies of Pope's edition of Shakespeare. Pope retaliated by satirizing him in the 1728 edition of The Dunciad. Theobald also wrote poems and plays.
